Each month we are going to highlight one of our extraordinary staff members here at Lexington and have them answer a few questions so you can get to know them better. Make sure to say hello next time you stop in! This month, the spotlight is on Alex!

How long have you been here at Lexington: Almost two years.
Who is your favorite author: George Saunders
What is your favorite book: Tenth of December by George Saunders. Saunders's writing is sparse, beautiful, and funny. The stories in this collection are dark, but always hopeful.
