Here we meet Curtis Contemporaries committee member, Kate Egan.
What was your childhood library? Any favorite memories from there?
My childhood library was in South Orange, New Jersey, where I was a fierce competitor in the summer reading challenge and I first discovered the novels of Madeleine L’Engle.
What is your favorite thing to do at Curtis?
My favorite thing at Curtis right now is the hush of the 1904 building. I love that the library is a busy, vibrant place, but I also love that it offers this oasis of calm.
Would you most likely be found reading a print book, or and e-book?
I like a print book during daytime and an e-book at night. No reading light required!
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust.
