The Basics





About Me

About Me

I live, breathe, eat, and sleep books.

I’m in an open relationship with the Strand and courting Bluestockings while waiting to hear back from Housing Works.

My spirit animal is a LOLcat.

Archivist for an NGO by day, Grad student (Library Science, concentration Children’s/YA Services, focus LGBTQ family/teen outreach) by night.

If chasing feminist dreams is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
