Sarah K.

When I was a child, I read books. I had them stashed all around the house in case of a reading emergency, perfected the art of reading while walking, and even spent an entire Minnesota Twins game reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I preferred magical lands to middle school and reading to sleep - and some things never change. I live amongst stacks of books on every surface, to the point that when we first started dating, my husband asked if I knew that I had an abnormal amount of reading material.

As well as working as the frontline manager at Dragonfly Books, I can be found crafting all kinds of things, eating my husband's cooking, and chasing my toddler around trying to clean hummus off his face. And, of course, staying up too late to read.
