About Cristina Favretto

Cristina Favretto is the Head of Special Collections at the University of Miami Libraries. Favretto has worked in a variety of bookish capacities at the Boston Public Library, Harvard, Duke, San Diego State, and UCLA, curating and building collections on zines, culinary history, surfing, and Aldus Manutius, among others. She also has had a shadow life as a performance artist and the lead singer in a post-punk cabaret band. She loves the beautiful intangibles of a library life, and in particular the marginal notes in old books, the spidery handwriting of ancient correspondence, and helping people find what they didn’t know they needed within our collections.
