authors i’d love to meet
posted by soe 1:16 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday asks which authors we’d love to meet. I’m fortunate to have both some amazing bookstores and the National Book Festival here in the city, so I’ve been able to meet many of my favorite living authors. I turn into a hair-twirling word-bungler around writers whose works I admire, giving me all of eternity to regret the interaction, but that doesn’t stop me from trying. If given a shot, I’d love to embarrass myself in front of:

  1. J.K. Rowling
  2. Toni Morrison
  3. Jason Reynolds (I’ve come really, really close)
  4. Katherine Paterson
  5. Neil Gaiman
  6. Brian Selznick
  7. Naomi Novik
  8. Erin Morganstern
  9. Fannie Flagg
  10. Rebecca Stead

(When I originally made the list, I accidentally put in twelve authors. It was hard to knock a few of them off the list, and I’d totally love to meet any of them!)

How about you? Which authors are you dying to meet?
