From the Desk of … Sarah Gerard
This week I asked writer Sarah Gerard to share a photograph and describe one item on her desk.
There’s a corduroy leafy sea dragon finger puppet peeking out from beneath that hardcover copy of Hanna Pittard’s novel Reunion. I acquired it while managing the children’s section of a Manhattan bookstore—often, the store’s owner and I would attend trade shows to buy toys wholesale and representatives from toy manufacturers would give us samples, or let us buy toys we wanted for ourselves at cost. I bought one leafy sea dragon for myself and another for my husband, which is now hanging from the ceiling of our bathroom, as if he’s swimming. – Sarah Gerard
