Kathryn Wood (MLIS) is the librarian for the Museum of Walking. Kathryn mastered the art of walking sometime in 1970. A few years later, she quick-stepped through a degree in theatre from UC Irvine, and eventually meandered into a Masters of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. She has perambulated for over two decades in San Francisco, well-known for being a rewarding walking city.  She prefers urban landscapes to pastoral ones, and believes that the perfect walk ends with a good lunch and an excellent book.
