Dr. Kelsey A. Fuller-Shafer is currently the supervisor of access services at the DiMenna-Nyselius Library at Fairfield University. Previously, she spent several years as an instructor of Nordic and Scandinavian studies, with experience teaching numerous courses in music, language, literature, and history at the University of Colorado Boulder and at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. She also served as a library and archives assistant in the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center, where she aided patrons with research and translation of English and Swedish language materials. Kelsey is originally from Connecticut. Sara Richard is an Eisner and Ringo Award–nominated artist from New Hampshire. Her art is inspired by Art Nouveau, Art Deco, funerary imagery, and the natural world. Her creations tend to skew into the macabre and unknown with a balance of sweetness and sentimentality, honoring the Victorian-era theme of Memento Mori. As a native of New Hampshire, Sara grew up surrounded by trees and plenty of wild mushrooms. When not making art or writing, she’s watching horror movies, cleaning forgotten gravestones with her mom, and collecting possibly haunted curiosities from the 19th century. Her online gallery can be found at SaraRichard.com.
