Riot Headline COVID-19 Updates from the Bookish World

Carolina Ciucci

Carolina Ciucci is a Literature (and occasionally History) student who is perpetually tackling new projects and then hustling to get them all done. Born and bred in the south of Argentina, she dreams of moving a little further south and calling the mountains home. In the meantime, she goes to school, works, volunteers and hoards books. She has named three cats and one dog (in her head) despite not actually having any pets. In case of emergency, you can summon her by talking about Ireland, fictional witches or the Brontës.
