Nerissa’s passion for all things literary was evident from a young age, when she corralled a younger brother to play Horton in her “production” of Horton Hatches an Egg. She went on to put books in other people’s hands — besides those of her younger brothers — at her store La Casa del Libro in San Francisco.
She then discovered the attraction of living and working in a smaller city when she moved to Williamsport to join the Brodart staff in 2013. Nerissa now enjoys the privilege of working remotely and starting each day practicing yoga on the deck at home in the redwoods. A passion for Salsa dancing and Scrabble keep her busy after work.
