About Heather Hart
Heather Hart was initiated into the wonderful world of libraries when she spent a semester in college cataloging books for the University of Iowa library. Since then, she has worked at the University of Iowa Press, Cornell University Press, The Association of American University Presses, Penguin, and now Consortium Book Sales & Distribution.

Consortium is home to over 100 independent publishers who publish a wide variety of award-winning books. Consortium is a member of ALTAFF, ERT and AAP, and participates regularly on their associated panels at library conferences.

Heather has an overflowing collection of beloved fiction and art books, which she continues to pack up and move from apartment to apartment, despite the admonishments of her chiropractor. She’s very grateful for her local library branch, which helps curb her book-hoarding addiction, while introducing her to intriguing new books and writers.
