Matchmaker – Melissa S.

Melissa's desert island reads:

  • Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches by Audre Lorde
  • Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
  • Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

What Melissa does when she's not reading:

When I'm not reading, you can find me at the dog park with my 8-year-old chiweenie.  I also love spending time with family, writing, crafting, watching movies, and going to concerts, museums and plays.

If Melissa could meet any literary character, or visit any literary world, it would be:

If I could visit any literary world, it would have to be the magical island in The House on the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune. I'd like to share a meal with the characters at the Marsyas Island Orphanage and tour their home and garden.

Ask Melissa what to read.
