I hope you all had a wonderful week and enjoyed our last Bookworm Feature :)
This week we've got one of our favorites, Ms. Addie Rawr. She creates magic with her hands.
It was only right that we reach out and feature her as a #WBW!
Enjoy our interview with her below:
Addie, what is your passion?:
My passion is art & design.
Who is your favorite author? Why?:
Tori Morrison has been my favorite author since high school when I first read Beloved. Her imagery and creative storylines makes it so easy to read through an entire book.
What are your top 5 favorite books?:
- The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley
- Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
- Beloved by Toni Morrison
- James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
- Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
How have the above books molded you into the woman that you are today?:
They help me discover confidence in myself as a creative and to never question myself.
What is the one book that you would read over and over again?:
Every book I've read I'd read over again. There's something refreshing about rereading a book that I've read as child. It's like you get to discover things that weren't there before.
What would be the title of your first book & Why?:
As an artist I don't see myself writing books however designing book covers is a dream of mine. I see myself creating soothing, impactful yet simple book covers for black women.
What do you think the youth should know about books & why they are important?:
Books are a way the youth can travel, hear new ideas and discover new prescriptive of life all while never leaving their home. It's important for children to read because it not only help expand their vocabulary but gives them a chance to use their imagination which at times tv shows/movies can muffle.
Addie, have you ever read a book that you were not too fond of?:
I'm sure I've read books that I didn't like but I don't remember any.
