Philip E.
What I do when I’m not at the library: I’m pursuing my myriad of interests -- conducting orchestras and choirs in the area, trying new recipes in the kitchen, spending time in the outdoors, and traveling as much as I can.
 
Something unique about me: Thanks to many cross-country moves growing up, I’ve been to 49 of the 50 states. I’m coming for you soon, Alaska!
 
The last thing(s) I read: Hey, Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
 
What I’m reading now: Heads of the Colored People by Nafissa Thompson-Spires and A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond
