Why did you join Quarto? What do you hope it accomplishes this year?
I love literature and editing (and the people who tend to get involved with literature and editing). I wanted to find a community where I hang out with like-minded literature-lovers and read awesome student work. Thus far, I haven't been disappointed.
What is the last book you read that wasn't for a class?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (it took me about 10 years to get to it).
If you could recommend one book to anyone, which would it be and why?
Jazz, by Toni Morrison. I read it in about 18 hours over Christmas Break, right as I was starting to miss the city. It's like The Great Gatsby, but with Morrison's prose and more murder and intrigue. (Plus, a whole bunch of social justice and feminism, which just makes everything better!)
If you could live in any book or literary world, which would it be and why?
The world of Ender's Game, but the books Xenocide and Children of the Mind. They might not be super "literary," but they've been my comfort book for my whole life and honestly? I'm super into space travel.
