2023 King County Literary Lion Recipient

"I am so honored to become a Literary Lion. Yup! I was selected as a recipient. There were over 150 nominations, and my book was chosen. Or maybe I was chosen. Not quite sure yet which it is, maybe both but either way, I’m thrilled and feel so much gratitude. And it gets even better. I’m going to be honored alongside Isabel Wilkerson! I can’t wait to meet her. I loved her book, The Warmth of Other Suns. Haven’t read her latest, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, but it’s on my list. There will be a huge Gala/Event on March 4, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue."
