I mainly read young adult books with strong female protagonists, African fiction, world folktales, and feminist speculative fiction. For nonfiction, my proclivities lean towards women’s history and biology. Among my favorite authors are Octavia E. Butler, Akiko Yosano, Zora Neale Hurston, Lauren Beukes, Tamora Pierce, Zitkala- Ša, Sheri S. Tepper, and Astrid Lindgren.
