About me

Hello! I am Alexandra Hinrichs, lover of children’s & young adult literature, public libraries, cooking, baking, and exploring old & new places.

I am back on the east coast now, living in Bangor, Maine. When I’m not chasing after my inquisitive toddler, you can find me playing (er…working) at The Briar Patch, a children’s bookstore in downtown Bangor.

I have MAs in History (History of Childhood) and Library & Information Studies (Youth Services) from UW-Madison. My previous experience includes working as a historical researcher at American Girl and a substitute youth services librarian at Middleton Public Library, both located in Middleton, Wisconsin. I also taught kindergarten at a private Thai school in Bangkok in 2007-08. I am originally from a small town in central Massachusetts.
