Celeste West

Celeste West, the inspiration behind the amazing Booklegger magazine, and co-editor of Revolting Librarians is dead. Booklegger was a library magazine like no other, radiating with a practical yet free spirited anarchism that was applied in a no-nonsense way to books, libraries and librarianship. It is impossible to believe that someone with such so much life and spirit in her is no longer around. An inspiration.
