KATIE LIBBY likes to think that she lives in the South Wedge but she actually lives in the Highland Park neighborhood. She can't tell you where things are on a map but she can recite all the lines in "Clueless" and "Sixteen Candles." She enjoys all things pop culture-related, has way too many books that she hasn't read yet, and thinks that her family and friends hung the moon.
