BACKLIT: Councilwoman Allison Hiltz

At-large city councilwoman Allison Hiltz could be considered a bibliophile. And her website, The Book Wheel, would hold that to be true. While recovering from open-hip surgery in 2012, Hiltz began reviewing books and blogging about them. After having reviewed nearly 400 books, to date, The Book Wheel has made a name for itself. Her reviews have been excerpted in NY Times Book Review advertisements, as well as Goodreads. Photo by Philip B. Poston/Sentinel
