Sheryl Cotleur – It’s hard to imagine a Book Buyer who has read more or done more for launching authors than Sheryl Cotleur. With 30 years in the book business, she has what many readers would
 consider a dream job. She buys books for all nine of Copperfield’s Books’ stores in San Francisco’s North Bay, and along with the job, she reads incessantly, while working with publishers, authors, and editors to discover the best new books. Over the past four years, her role has expanded beyond the bookstore to include serving as a jurist for a number of book awards and, in 2014, she was named as a judge for the National Book Foundation’s annual fiction awards, one of the nation’s most prestigious literary prizes.
