Armchair BEA! That means it is time to get to know everyone. This is my third year, so I am an old hand at this.
What is your theme song?
My theme song is "Devil's Spoke" by Laura Marling.
Many trains and many miles,
Brought you to me on this sunny isle
And what of which you wish to speak,
Have you come here to rescue me?
What does diversity mean to you?
This is a trickier question than it seems! But to me diversity is plurality of voices, an environment not only consisting of different people but actively encouraging those people to speak.
What is one book everyone should read?
Watership Down by Richard Adams
What is your favorite genre and why?
Lately, I've been loving political fantasy. I like seeing intricate worlds built with a focus on how people interact and what makes (or breaks) power. Go Goblin Emperor for the Hugo!
What book are you reading right now?
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel and illustrated by Jon Klassen (a real dream team!)
Take a picture of your bookshelf and share it with us! :) (#ABEAShelfie)
I actually just bought new shelves to replace those destroyed in a flood.* Check out the tops of the shelves (and some odds n' ends) on my Instagram.
*Knock on wood, because the other parts of the shelves are being stored near a part of Houston that is currently flooding.
