Erinn Batykefer collects bones in jars. These are lined up on her mantel and are sorted according to size, species, and collection site. She is always looking for interesting jars to sort them into. Erinn earned her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (where she collected carp and coyote bones) and is the author of Allegheny, Monongahela (Red Hen Press) and The Artist’s Library: A Field Guide (Coffee House Press). She is co-founder and editor of The Library as Incubator Project and works as a librarian in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (raccoon bones, unidentified teeth). Visit her online at erinn-batykefer-squarespace.com and at eb-writes.tumblr.com. If you would like to mail her bones you find on your travels, send her a DM on Twitter.
