I started a bookstagram account. You can find it at kimberlyhirsh.reads if you want to follow along. Right now this almost 20 year old picture of me kissing books is the only post over there.

Here are seven bookish facts about me:

💀 My favorite book since 7th grade has been Piers Anthony’s ON A PALE HORSE. I love that it’s about what it’s like to BE Death.

📓 The most recent F2F bookish event I attended was when @austinkleon visited Flyleaf Books on tour for KEEP GOING. That was > 2 years ago.

🚪I love stories with hidden doors that lead to secret rooms. I think the most recent of these I’ve read is @erinmorgenstern’s THE STARLESS SEA.

📕 When I was in middle school, I volunteered as a summer program assistant at my local library.

🌳 My current favorite reading spot is a hammock on my back deck.

🎒 I used to be a middle school librarian.

💒 I’ve only been to the Library of Congress once that I can remember. It was a spiritual experience.

📚 Your turn! Let me know a bookish fact about you!

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
