Shelley Sackier



Jinx

Sponsored by William & Mary Ross Foundation

Shelley Sackier is the author of "The Antidote," "The Freemason's Daughter" and "Dear Opl." She blogs at www.shelleysackier.com about food, family and the folly that is life while living atop a mountain in the Blue Ridge. She also gives school presentations to illuminate the merits of embracing failure (just like NASA) and to further her campaign to erect monuments to all librarians.
