• Want

Children’s Book Buyer

Want (the t is silent!) loves writing, sharing, and discussing books that remind her of all the people she’s met, and those she hasn’t yet. Talk to her any time about children’s books (particularly YA), poetry, and nonfiction (particularly memoir and cultural studies). Watch her get excited when you mention rock music, hockey, why YA and graphic novels are some of the best reading you’ll ever do, and how diversity in storytelling is essential. A Midwest transplant with an MFA in Creative Writing, she has an essay in the anthology All the Women in My Family Sing.
