I picked this one up at pages turned.
1. Name the last book by a female author that you've read.
Just finishing E.L. Konigsburg's the mysterious edge of the heroic world.
2. Name the last book by an African or African-American author that you've read. It looks like it's been a year since I read anything that I'm sure fits this question (I could well have read something, but didn't know the author was African-American). Last year I read The Dark Child and A Long Way Gone and Dreams from my Father.
3. Name one from a Latino/a author. The most recent was probably How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents, last fall.
4. How about one from an Asian country or Asian-American? China Witness, last month. Banker to the Poor was the month before, and Serve the People and The Hundred Secret Senses and The Joy Luck Club and Better in January.
5. What about a GLBT writer?
Nope. At least nothing where that was the point. I've read lots of books where it's mentioned in passing that the author is GLBT, but I don't remember.
6. Why not name an Israeli/Arab/Turk/Persian writer, if you're feeling lucky? Things I've Been Silent About, last month, then Pomegranate Soup and Persepolis 1 and 2 and The Swallows of Kabul in January.
7. Any other "marginalized" authors you've read lately? I suppose last week's The Silent Steppe should go here, instead of on #4, because I'm betting the writer of the meme wasn't thinking of Kazakhstan for that question.
I'm feeling diverse enough. Of course, half these questions turned out to be about Asia, so I'm at an advantage.
