A fictional work by LAC Federal employee Rachel Mauro is featured in District Lines, Volume V, available February 11, 2018. It is her second published work since joining LAC Federal.
Rachel’s short story, “Quarter Life,” is about a young woman laid-off due to the 2008 recession, ruminating about past college relationships and her present life in Washington, DC.
District Lines is an anthology of local writing and art, “intended to capture a sense of people and place” in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area. The book is published annually by Politics and Prose, the renowned local bookstore and community offering literary programs and events.
“I’m thrilled to be included in the District Lines anthology as a voice for the Washington, DC writing community. This story is semi-autobiographical, ending with my protagonist deciding to pursue a degree in Library and Information Science.”
Volume V and past issues of District Lines can be purchased online at Politics and Prose or on the shelves at their bookstore locations.
Rachel joined LAC Federal in 2013 and is currently on assignment at the Library of Congress, where she is responsible for metadata quality control. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Washington College and MLIS from the University of Maryland.
