What do you do when you’re not at Booklist?
When I’m not at Booklist, I’m wearing my Development Director pants at Red Tape Theatre, my actor pants elsewhere in Chicago, or pondering the magnificent ebullience of Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter on BoJack Horseman.
What are you an expert on?
Millennials and how wonderful they actually are.
What’s one book you were surprised you liked?
I started reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander at the behest of my sisters, and I like it so far.
If you could resurrect one dead author so that he or she could write about the current political climate/technology /world events, whom would you resurrect and why?
Mark Twain—I’d like to hear him exchange zingers with Ilene Cooper, Booklist’s contributing editor for Books for Youth.
