“America’s quietest great writer.” A description of Calvin Trillin, Boston Globe, 01/06/2007.

This site is maintained by Sally Gore – librarian by day, off-duty librarian by night.  I play the mandolin and ukulele, I listen to all kinds of music but enjoy singer-songwriter folk musicians best, I have a part-time gig as a clinical exercise physiologist, I was a minister until I came to realize I didn’t wholly believe what I was saying, and the thing I like doing best in life is to make people smile or better, laugh. I live with my wonderful partner, an angel of a dog, and a cat who’s learning to live with people. And other than a good person, I aspire to be the NEXT quietest great writer.

Five Favorite Books

  • Holy the Firm, Annie Dillard
  • A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving
  • Lying Awake, Mark Salzman
  • Oranges Aren’t the Only Fruit, Jeanette Winterson
  • Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Richard and Florence Atwater (the very first “chapter book” I can recall reading)

Five Favorite Movies

  • Desk Set (required viewing for anyone working in a library)
  • Lone Star (or anything directed by John Sayles, though this is probably my favorite)
  • Best in Show
  • Cool Hand Luke
  • And my favorite movie of all time… Coal Miner’s Daughter
