Emma

 
"Raised in my family's bookstore in Cleveland, Ohio, I am finally fulfilling my destiny of becoming a 3rd generation independent bookseller. A historical researcher by trade, I often find myself reading contemporary nonfiction and historical fiction, as I want to constantly challenge and expand my view of the world and humanity. I am also an avid consumer of the pop culture zeitgeist so between long reads you'll find me speeding through the latest celebrity memoir and Hollywood's latest book-to-film adaptations. Additionally, ever since moving to Los Angeles from Ohio 4 years ago, I find myself drawn to literature starring the City of Angels. Also, my dad has sold children and young adult books for Penguin Random House for over 35 years so I constantly find myself re-reading and recommending my childhood favorites."

This Los Angeles author catapulted to the forefront of the poetry world after winning the 2014 Walt Whitman prize, an award given out by the Academy of American Poets to the best poet yet unpublished. Her debut collection, The Same Different, showcases her ability to play with words and language as beautifully as she plays with emotion. -- Emma T.
