Austin: What is your name and what do you do?
Deborah: Deborah Schander, Reference/Student Services Librarian.
A: How long have you been at Georgia State University College of Law Library?
D: I’ve been at GSU since August 2010.
A: That’s crazy. I started in August 2010 as well.
D: Because we started on the same day.
A: Oh yah…
A: So, what books are currently on your night stand?
D: I’m currently reading two books: First, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes From My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg, which is a memoir/ode to food, and makes me ravenously hungry during my MARTA commute. And second, Shadow’s Edge, the second book in Brent Week’s Night Angel trilogy, because sometimes, you just need an assassin’s story to pep up life.
A: What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share with our readers?
D: I was in a professional opera despite the fact that I can’t sing.
A: When you are not saving the world here at GSU Law Library, what do you enjoy doing outside of work?
D: I’m pretty boring. I like reading (mysteries, superhero comics, sci fi), going to the theatre, and being crafty (cross-stitch, crochet). I don’t get to travel as much as I would like, but I do love to visit new places.
A: Lastly, what is your favorite vacation spot? The place you go to leave it all behind for a few days.
D: London. I studied in England during part of both college and law school. I traveled throughout the UK, but London just never gets old.
A: Seems pretty old to me…
D: Please don’t make me spit my coffee out.
