We at BCDB are lucky to have a great number of contributors to our pages. Here are some of our authors, and a little bit about them.

Elizabeth Eckhart is a graduate writing student who blogs about entertainment, literature, and anything else that piques her interest (and is accessible online) during her free time. She was born and raised in Chicago, and has absolutely no idea what the Bears, Cubs, or and other sports teams are up to. She does, however, know where to locate poetry slams and free salsa lessons in the city. Elizabeth would love to know what you think of her prose- send her a note here.
