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 is the managing editor of Foreword Reviews.
