The Curious ‘Cat: Speed Readers

The Villanova men’s basketball team has made it to the Final Four! This week, the Curious ‘Cat asked Falvey staff, “Your basketball team of literary authors made it to the final four, who would be your point guard?”

William Repetto, Communication & Marketing Graduate Assistant: “Edgar Allan Poe. I would want him directing my offense because of his intimidating images and dark sense of humor.”

Chris Hallberg, Library Technology Developer: “Andy Weir. He would bring the scientific analysis that is crucial to victory, and we must outsmart our opponents.”

Dave Uspal, Library Technology Developer: “Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. He is somebody who carries through adversity and turns it into a strength.”

Rob LeBlanc, First Year Experience/Humanities Librarian: “Stephen King because he’s 6’4, got the reach and he terrifies everyone he goes up against. Unlike Poe, who is a measly 5’8.”

Jeannine Ahern, Finance/Administration Specialist: “J.K. Rowling. She always has a vision and she sticks with it and achieves it quickly.”

Laura Hutelmyer, Electronic Resource & Special Acquisitions Coordinator (with the assist from Jesse Flavin, Acquisitions/Electronic Resources Coordinator &  Roberta Rosci, Resource Management Specialist): “Michael Crichton because he 6’9 and he can just put his hands up and and block Stephen King when he tries to drive in the paint.”


Sarah Wingo, Liaison Librarian for Literature & Theatre: “Roxane Gay. When I met her at a book signing she commented on Villanova’s basketball team, so she already knows more about basketball than I do.”

Dee-Dee Pope, Access Services Specialist: “Toni Cade Bambara!”

Good luck, Wildcats!
