Author On the Bookcase: Heather Barbieri, author of The Lace Makers of Glenmara

Author On the Bookcase

Heather Barbieri

Heather BarbieriI'm thrilled to welcome Heather Barbieri, author of The Lace Makers of Glenmara. to On the Bookcase. Heather tells the story of her grandmother, Esther, and her mother, Michelle, and the joy of reading they shared with her. As a result, Heather's childhood was filled with books as Heather read from "quiet corners—behind the Christmas tree (the lights were particularly magical to read by) or the sofa (not on the sofa, behind it, right by the heat register)"

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Heather!

"Who instilled a love of reading in you? A teacher? A parent?

Robert's Reflections

Everyone has a mentor -- whether it is a family member, teacher, boss, fellow colleague. Robert Segedy, veteran bookseller, was/is mine. His knowledge and experience of the book world has assisting me though my bookseller days and beyond. His dry,and sometimes acerbic, humor saved me through many situations! Every so often, Robert will be adding his thoughts and ideas to this book blog. Thanks so much, Robert!

When I first started bookselling, there was no such thing as computer databases or the Internet; everything was done by hand or memory.
