Q & A
Book Culture is excited to be hosting Deborah Blumenthal for a special storytime at Book Culture Columbus on February 11th. In anticipation, we asked her a few questions about her book and what she's working on.
Local author Sara Latta's new book, Smash!: Exploring the Mysteries of the Universe with the Large Hadron Collider has just been released! The book explains the science behind the discovery of the Higgs Boson in a fun graphic format for middle grade readers. Sara was kind enough to answer a few questions for us about her book and her work.
Ann Morgan writes in the opening of The World Between Two Covers, "I glanced up at my bookshelves, the proud record of more than twenty years of reading, and found a host of English and North American greats starting down at me I had barely touched a work by a foreign language author in years The awful truth dawned. I was a literary xenophobe."
Prompted to read a book translated into English from each of the world's 195 UN-recognized countries (plus Taiwan and one extra), Ann sought out classics, folktales, current favorites and commercial triumphs, novels, short stories, memoirs, and countless mixtures of all these things..
