Erin Kodicek
Sara Nelson
Before Erin was born, her mother worried that she’d be the only Kodicek to take pleasure in reading anything more substantial than a take-out menu. Erin has been happily hawking books for 15+ years. She enjoys literary fiction, narrative-driven nonfiction, and a well-written menu.
