What book are you reading right now? I'm reading Gringolandia by Lyn Miller-Lachman and Design-It-Yourself Clothes by Cal Patch. Re-reading Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas, Creative Knitting by Mary Walker-Phillips and The Spiritual Activist by Claudia Horowitz. I'm getting ready to read AYA by Marguerite Abouet and am very excited about that. I'm just about always re-reading an Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot mystery.
Your favorite children’s book: Noooooo! I can't pick just one! A Wrinkle in Time is very, very dear to me, as is Till We Have Faces. The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. The House at Pooh Corner and A Bear Called Paddington. The All-Of-A-Kind Family & Shoes series. Langston Hughes' "Simple" stories. Oh! I read and re-read Julius Lester's Black Folktales as a child...(can you guess that there might be more to this list?)
Your favorite non-fiction book: The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Kathleen Norris' Amazing Grace, and just about any political biography I've ever read. Compassion as a Subversive Activity by David Urion, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, Where Have All the Flowers Gone: A Musical Autobiography by Pete Seeger and Crossing the BLVD by Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan. (To be continued, heh...)
Your favorite classic (read: book they made you read in school) book: Macbeth
The last book that made you laugh: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.
The last book that made you cry: The same.
The last book you recommended to a friend: A Wish Before Midnight by Zetta Elliot
A novel you’ve re-read (and re-read): I re-read Agatha Christie's mysteries all of the time.
One sentence that gives the gist of your book best: When Everyone's looking, will the You nobody knows stand up?
Avoiding spoilers, a 1-2 sentence passage from your book that you really like:
It's one of those unexpected gift moments, like looking up and finding a mirror right in front of you, and instead of food in your teeth or a booger hanging from your nose, it's really you, and you like what you see.
