Author Spotlight: Rita Leganski

Who are some of your favorite authors?

I mention some of them in the PS Section of the book—Carson McCullers, Flannery O’Connor, Harper Lee, and William Faulkner, to which I would add Southerners Eudora Welty, Pat Conroy, and Anne Tyler. I also like Sheri Reynolds, Leif Enger, Yann Martel, Ann Patchett, Aimee Bender, and Alice Hoffman. And I’m a HUGE Annie Dillard fan.

 

Tell us some books that you will always make room for on your shelves.

To Kill a Mockingbird; Peace Like a River; Ellen Foster; Life of Pi; A Gracious Plenty; The Book Thief; Frankenstein; The Catcher in the Rye; A Good Man is Hard to Find; The Member of the Wedding; The Sound and the Fury; Bel Canto; The Accidental Tourist; An Invisible Sign of My Own; The Giver; and Teaching a Stone to Talk.

I’m sure there are many more that I’ll think of later.

 

Rita- do you have any #literaryconfessions?

I’ve never read any Jane Austen.

 

Do you have a #literarycrush?

I had the Rhett Butler crush going on when I was very young, but that’s about it.

 

If you could be a character in a book, who would you pick to be?

Liesel Meminger from THE BOOK THIEF.
