About Me
Bean is an edible, kidney-shaped seed, borne in the long pods of a leguminous plant. No, wait, that's not right. Bean is a sometimes poet, non-practicing architect, and children's librarian at Brooklyn Public. He lives in NYC and, despite what you may have heard, is not actually from Antarctica. His heart is covered in paisleys. He enjoys bright colors, long novels, crossword puzzles, and the company of rabbits.
