Marisa's Recommendations

Marisa happily joined Riverstone in March 2021. She’s a sort-of retired geologist that splits her time at the bookstore and working as an educator at the natural history museum and on the riverboat Explorer. When she’s not working, she is probably outdoors, reading or spending time with her family. Her favorite genre is fiction, but she also loves biographies and other nonfiction.
