I am a librarian and book group leader who has led book groups in public libraries, bookstores, boardrooms, museums, living rooms, retirement communities, and synagogues. Born and raised in New York City, I have lived and worked in Manhattan, Boston, and now the SF Bay Area. In July 2011 I was appointed Library Manager at the St Patrick's Seminary & University in Menlo Park, California.
I teach librarians how to run book discussion groups through a California training organization called Infopeople (www,infopeople.org).
But wait, there's more. I write book reviews, articles about urban and suburban life and radio essays about life as a librarian. Here's a link to a KQED Perspective that I did: http://www.kqed.org/epArchive/R305230737
I also am the author of Running Book Discussion Groups: A How To Do It Manual (Neal-Schuman Publishers 2006).
After interviewing food and wine expert and author Leslie Sbrocco at Book Group Expo 2006(www.bookgroupexpo.com), I was a restaurant reviewer on her KQED television show, Check Please Bay Area. My 2007 appearance, in which I reviewed Mountain View restaurant, Amber India, continues to provide more recognition from strangers than anything else I have ever done in my life! If you want to be on the show, too, here's how: http://blogs.kqed.org/food/?page_id=30
