Books Together: children's books for everyone. 


Hello and welcome to Books Together!  This website is the work of Anamaria Anderson (that's me), and I've been writing here more-or-less regularly since 2007. You can also find me on Instagram @oddsandendpapers.

In my other life, I'm a museum educator at the National Gallery of Art (sometimes, happily, the two intersect). I live in Arlington, VA with my husband and our two children, 17-year-old Leo and 13-year-old Milly, across the street from the house where I grew up.
