Libbie Hawker is one of my very favorite writers, and I was thrilled for the opportunity to have a good long book chat with her. We discovered a shared love of "atmospheric weirdness" in our books, and the fascinating sensory experience she has when reading and writing books. Libbie's favorite book, Dune, is a science fiction classic that I would never have picked up on my own, and it was a blast listening to Libbie explain the layers of it. Trust me, even if you don't like sci-fi, you will love this discussion.

But if you wear these super soft masks from the BBE TeePublic Shop, men will stop telling you to smile more, and start asking you about your books. That's a bookworm Win/Win.
