I'm a certified, bona fide Library Journal Mover & Shaker. As Steven M. Cohen would say, sweet! Many thanks to Christine Borne and Liz Burns for nominating me, and to my family for enduring my absurd worries over how un-photogenic I am. The pictures of me turned out to be quite flattering, so thanks, too, to the nice photographer, who endured my self-conscious grimaces during the shoot. (For those of you with the print edition, I know I should be holding a camera phone in the picture, but my old & busted cell phone doesn't have a camera, and besides, viewed in the correct light, isn't the lighter a metaphor for me bridging the gap between concert-going generations? No? Am I reaching with that one?) It's a real honor to be profiled. Thanks, LJ! Everyone, go read 'em all!

    Hey, Sophie. Congratulations! I couldn't find any of those pictures, though. Where do I click?

    I still think your picture was the most moving and shaking one in the whole issue, Sophie. :-)

    But now I'm dying to know if you purchased your "rock star librarian" clothing or made it yourself!

    Sort of both -- I had it custom-made at Neighborhoodies.
