Hi Dr. Berger,
I found out about this blog, when I was organizing old emails and saw the link you sent me for your book in Amazon. In the blurb about the author, it mentioned this blog. I look forward to reading it further after my brief perusal today. I really like it ! I also look forward to reading your book and writing my review. I hope you are well.

[…] Michele Berger interviews Kelly Wooten, co-editor of Litwin Books’ recent publication, Make Your Own History: Documenting Feminist and Queer Activism in the 21st Century, which was the second volume in Emily Drabinski’s Series on Gender and Sexuality in Information Studies. Michele does a good interview that tells you quite a bit about Kelly Wooten and the background for the book.
