In 2002 Bravo’s Arts and Minds shot this piece on my career as a private librarian. The channel, then devoted to the arts, was purchased by NBC and remodeled into a vehicle for Reality based TV – Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Project Runway – and never showed in the US.
My family and I have since moved from Brooklyn Heights to Sugar Hill in Washington Heights/Harlem, where in 2005 I opened Jumel Terrace Books. The out-of-print and rare shop specializes in local history: African and American.
The Private Library is now in its 28th year providing services to Bibliophiles: cataloguing, bibliography, appraisals, archival services, organization, moving, book searches and research. We specialize in made-to-order and custom made libraries on all subjects.
