Pittsburgh’s City of Asylum, which provides sanctuary to exiled writers from around the world, celebrates its tenth anniversary this weekend with an event featuring their five current residents, Huang Xiang, Horacio Castellanos Moya, Khet Mar, Israel Centeno, and Yaghoub Yadali.
Any chance I could impose upon you for a tiny favor? That one post, "Book a Voyage, read" - could I get a really good straight-on photo of that from you in as high of a resolution as possible? It's a Star Trek thing and I work for a Star Trek fan-site (non-profit).
All four main characters from Akata Witch as I pictured them in my head. My headcanon is that Sasha has scars from the fights he was in and Chichi is of ambigous age. Akata Witch is a great book and I recommend it to people. Its by a Nigerian author too!
that book i was talking about - not actually rabbits? but lookit their ears.
I think Cece Bell drew everyone as rabbits to highlight the various hearing aids she had to wear as a kid. Plus they’re just cute and it makes the memoir more approachable for elementary school aged readers.
oh, for sure, emphasising the ears makes a lot of sense in the context! and it’s been well received in my high school, which is great.
It’s also popular with the elementary school kids I know.
