Jessica Sager

Jessica Sager is the co-founder and executive director of All Our Kin. She loves to read more than almost anything else in the world. Her reading is of the indiscriminate kind; from Tolstoy to sci-fi to unabashed junk, any time she can open the pages of a novel and disappear is pure delight. When her daughter was very small Jessica had almost no time to read. So she learned sneaky reading techniques: reading while loading the dishwasher and sweeping the floor. Now Jessica has the pleasure of sharing books with her ten-year-old daughter, whose favorite book is currently The Book Thief.
