Reading is one of my absolute favorite things to do, and writing is a close second.
I can think of few places I’d rather be than in a library or bookstore.
I’m especially proud of the fact that here in The Swirl World, we feature a number of authors who have decided to take Toni Morrison’s advice:
If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
Mechal Renée Roe grew up as a child from a mixed shade family. She looked for a book that addressed some of the things she experienced with her hair – a book that celebrated the uniqueness of Black women’s hair in all its glory.
She couldn’t find the book she was looking for – and today, she’s the author and illustrator of Happy Hair!

So, what about you? What do you want to read? Have you been able to find it?
If not, why not write it yourself?
