In May 2013, Susan Mills interviewed me for her podcast Bookbinding Now. In addition to that interview, Susan offered me the opportunity to suggest someone for a future interview or conduct my own for the podcast.
Up until this point I had only conducted written interviews on the blog, so I was intrigued to test out my interview skills in a live, one-on-one scenario. I chose to interview my friend and colleague, Henry Hébert. In the interview we chat about his experiences in the field of conservation leading up to attending North Bennet Street School and what he’s done since graduating in 2012. Spoiler: his talents and expert skills have landed him the position of Rare Book Conservator at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
