Your favorite spot in the library?
The Poe Room and the Maryland Department at Central Library

What are you currently reading?
In Full Glory Reflected by Ralph E. Eshelman and Burton K. Kummerow.

What book would you recommend to readers right now, and why?
The same book. It is beautifully illustrated and contains great information about the War of 1812 in Chesapeake region, including a lot of detail and little known facts that Marylanders should know.

What is one book you could not finish, and why?
A World on Fire by Amanda Foreman. I planned to finish it, but it is really a big book to read and other things got in the way.

What is the last thing you came to the Library to find?
My mother's drawer that is still not in its "home." [For a time, donors to the Library could choose to create a library card catalog drawer in their name or the name of a family member.]

What is your favorite memory of the Library?
There are so many. I've loved going to the library since I was a child and the adventures I would find there.

What is one thing you want everyone to know about the library?
The staff is always willing to help—always. Also, I just wanted to add that my office at the Maryland Historical Society is actually situated in the first level of Enoch Pratt's House on W. Madison and Park Ave.
