A librarian by profession, my career spanned virtually every position in academic, public and special libraries from shelver to media specialist, public library director, associate university librarian, and dean of learning resources and technology. In 2008 I authored Beloit’s Club Pop House (Arcadia Publishing), a photographic history of my favorite music hangout as a teenager. If you’re on Facebook, check out one of the special interest pages I administer, Wisconsin Garage Bands 1960s. My life was shaped not only by the books I read, but by the music to which I listened, learned to play and occasionally performed. My stories explore that common thread.
