Biographical and Professional Information

Saricks is a well-known writer and speaker on readers' advisory.

Her book, Read On...Audiobooks: Reading Lists for Every Taste offers original annotations for more than 300 audiobook titles, grouped according to some 60 themes, fiction and nonfiction. Lists are organized by character, story, setting, language, and mood/tone. Each entry provides a plot description and discusses the appeal of the narrator.
