Diana's Picks

Diana is the store manager (and Poppy's owner!)  While the locals seem to think that Diana is always at Forever Books, she can also often be found biking the roads of southwest Michigan.  She enjoys reading anything of substance (no chick-lit, please), cookbooks, and she has a private book collection rivaling the store.  She has three daughters who have inherited her love of books.
