Staff Picks - Lilly

   

Books play a profound role in grounding my sense of place on this planet. They transport me to different times, places and perspectives. They provide the long view to contemporary social issues and scientific study. Whether fiction or non-fiction, I love a great story. But best of all, books are a powerful currency connecting me with family, friends and anyone who might cares to read too.
