About The Uncorked Librarian
Where Books, Booze, and Travel Come Together
Hold on. Let me put down my glass of, uhhh… I mean this awesome book… Just kidding, and welcome!
Did you ever read One Paris Summer and just have to pose like Sophie at all of the Rodin statues?
Or, did Anne Frank’s diary inspire you to travel to the Netherlands? Imagine walking behind the tiny staircase to see where she penned her heart-wrenching words…
What about craving all of the books and booze in Dublin? I, for one, had to visit the Long Room at Trinity College and breathe in ancient books on my birthday. OK, I gave a twirl too and hit up a pub.
Books transport, inspire, and allow us to travel, even if it’s just in our dreams or until we can make our dreams come true. Sometimes we are lucky enough to visit these destinations in person and see the places that we could once only imagine.
I hope TUL guides you on this literary journey and expands your global reading list even more. We’ll help you pick the best diverse books to save you time and enhance your travels. What will you find on The Uncorked Librarian?

Who Is This Tipsy Sommelier?
I love sipping an oaked Chardonnay on a picnic table overlooking the CT fall foliage. Not to mention warming up with Glühwein at a German Christmas market or Dutch Jenever at a library bar in Amsterdam.
Sign me up.
Add in a good wanderlust-inspiring book and some travel planning, and I’m in heaven.
More so, I am an MLIS graduate and hold a BA in English and History from Smith College.
I truly began to understand the art and importance of travel after my year as a Fulbright Scholar in Depok, Indonesia.
In Indo, I taught English at a public high school. Basically, I posed as Miss America for the year. In reality, I played a lot of Uno, read the entire Sookie Stackhouse series, and stood in front of 600 students each week, wildly gesturing and sweating. Best job and experience in my life to date.
I hold certifications in TEFL and Youth Development. In the office-like world, I possess more than 10 years of urban program management experience. My work focused on literacy and teaching. In addition, I spent five years in the public library systems. Gosh, help me.
Today, I am a board member for a nonprofit that brings the joys of reading to families. When not promoting literacy, I parade around (more like beer down) as a pilot’s wife with four furry children in Asheville, North Carolina.
Obsessions include: YA books, brewery yoga, olives, decorating my home with owl everything, caticorns, and Sicily. I have a reputation for finding breweries and wineries anywhere I go–with no notice.
Oh, and I blog full-time. As in 26 hours out of the day.
