In Feeding the Dragon, Sharon revisits her time growing up in an apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes branch of the New York Public Library, where her father served as the building's custodian. Shrouded in family mystery, Sharon's story boldly examines how both the power of forgiveness and her lifelong love for the written word have helped her battle dragons of all forms.
