Barbara Lane

Barbara Lane began her time as a books columnist for The Chronicle in 2019 and she can't remember a time when she didn't have her nose in the pages of a book. Books have played a large part in her career in print and broadcast media, as a producer and onstage host, as current director of events at Copperfield's Books, and as a literacy tutor. She's the unofficial book whisperer to an ever-growing group of fellow book lovers who seek her recommendations for everything from holiday reading to suggestions for convalescing moms and book-averse nephews.
