Martha Wells / Emilie & The Hollow World / Lyra, Y.T., Katniss; meet Emilie / Heroines All

There are heroines in SF&F that grab you and shake you
Lyra from Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials
Y.T. from Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash
Katniss from Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy

Meet Emilie from Martha Wells'
Emilie & the Hollow World
This book is, for reader's like me, a Show Stopper
The world fades and, The Hollow World, is
You are in the company of Emilie
Nothing else exists

I have an eight year old daughter
As she ages and the books fit
I want her to read about these young women
I want her to know that a young woman
Can grow up with a compassionate heart
And, have the grit to walk the world

I am not going to say a thing
Emilie & the Hollow World
Deserves SelfDiscovery
Open your mind
Open your heart
Get to know Emilie

Martha Wells, Strange Chemistry
Thank You!
Take your bows

Music new to the library
A young woman with grit and a compassionate heart
