About Rima

Rima Shore, researcher and writer, lives and works in New York City. Until 2015, she was the Adelaide Weismann Chair of Educational Leadership at Bank Street College of Education in NYC, where she chaired the Educational Leadership Department. Rima’s publications have focused on Russian literature, the arts, education, and women’s studies.

A founding editor of the literary journal Conditions, she is the author of What Kids Need (Beacon Press) and Rethinking the Brain (Families and Work Institute), and the co-author of the Dictionary of Contemporary Biography (Penguin). Rima is a dedicated student of the violin, and her interest in her instrument’s history and repertoire inspired a biography of virtuoso Eva Mudocci. This project took her to libraries and research sites in six countries.

Library Salons are a series of informal lectures and group discussions held after hours in the Library on Friday evenings. Refreshments will be served.
