Jane Leavy on library stacks and sculpting lobsters

We’re so thrilled that Jane Leavy will join us for this year’s Opus & Olives. In preparation for the big event, we asked Jane a couple questions to help fans get to know her better. This is an #opusexclusive.

Tell us something that people might now know about you.

I’m a welder and sculptor in my free time. Am just finishing a lobster, a ladybug and a tree made of sawblades.

Tell us what you love about libraries.

My mother was on the board of the William Cullen Bryant Library in Roslyn, NY and I grew up within its walls. I remember the smell of the stacks in the elegant, paneled, two-story reading room where I liked to slide the ladders along the floor, climbing them when no one was looking.



Meet Jane and the rest of our bestselling lineup in person on October 14 at the RiverCentre in downtown Saint Paul!
