Alexandra Drake joined the Houston Public Library in November 2015, is a native Houstonian and a wearer of many hats, both literally and professionally. She graduated from the University of Houston in 2007 with a BA in English and earned her MLS from the University of North Texas in 2012. An avid sewist and crafter, she draws inspiration from all things vintage. Usually she’s a fan of nonfiction, with the occasional crossover into feminist and historical fiction, plus some dystopian novels and horror. A former creator of scavenger hunts and purveyor of rock n’ roll memorabilia, she is delighted to add HPL librarian to the developing list of character-building careers.
