Michelle Anne Schingler, Book Reviewer

Ever since a kind librarian gifted a discarded board book to a very young Michelle, she’s regarded books as transformational. Her transition from divinity school into library work and book reviewing felt like a natural one. She likes books that surprise her by making her laugh out loud, that make her feel new and widening feelings, and that brim with quirkiness, and she still cannot resist the magic of a free book. She is the managing editor of Foreword Reviews.
