The place and purpose of the bookstore(s) are my work and my passion. I consider myself humble caretaker to them—to the stories they offer in both bound books and shared experience.

When asked what I like to read, I always answer, elegant, powerful sentences. If one or two appear upfront in a novel, a work of nonfiction, a children’s book, I am swallowed. I am also a passionate reader of wordless picture books and graphic narratives. This may seem contrary to my claim about elegant, powerful sentences. It is not.

If I have met you, I am grateful. If not yet, I look forward.
