Mary Catherine (M.C.) Kinniburgh is an archives broker and rare book dealer at Granary Books. She specializes in twentieth century and contemporary poetry, archives, and artists' books. She wrote Wild Intelligence: The Politics of Knowledge and Postwar American Poets' Libraries (University of Massachusetts Press, 2022), which explores the idea of the poet's library as a political act of countercultural knowledge production, drawing on her Ph.D. research and several years working as a literary manuscripts specialist at The New York Public Library in the Berg Collection of English and American Literature. She has edited works by Gregory Corso and Mary Korte with Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative, and published a bibliography and oral history of Maureen Owen's Telephone Books and magazine (with University at Buffalo's Among the Neighbors series). An active member of the Bibliographical Society of America's publications committee and the Grolier Club, she is also the publisher of TKS Books: a small edition imprint that specializes in artists' books and hand-detailed bookmaking, whose works are held in special collections libraries throughout North America.
