Amelia has been living in RVA for 4 years and no where has felt more like home. She found Fountain after graduating from VCU and now she is living the dream helping others find their next favorite book. You'll most likely catch her reading horror, sci-fi, anything dystopic, and craft/ hobby books. When she's not at the store she's curling, brewing beer or chatting with her cat Clementine (in a totally normal way). Come in and talk to her about whatever new and obscure hobby a book has convinced her to jump into.
Immediately after finishing The White Book I flipped back and started it all over again. Kang writes in intense bursts, vividly describing a series of memories thematically linked by the color white. These interleaved vignettes build the story of a woman and the death of her infant sibling. Evocative imagery from breast milk to snow create this narrative of personal loss. The emotions feel so real you'll have to keep reminding yourself it's fiction.
This Cookie has had a terrible day. From bad haircuts to sold-out ice cream this grumpy lump doesn't want to talk. But if you stick with him he just might start to share why he is so angry. Complete with adorable illustrations by Maria Karipidou, Dockrill's misunderstood baked good shows that good friends listen and maybe that's reason enough to soften this cookie.
