I’ve always loved Maya Angelou’s poetry, and I picked up this edition of And Still I Rise at @diabolikbooks the other day. This adorable little set-up under the stairs was the perfect place to sit and read it today. So much powerful poetry – some I was familiar with, but a surprising number I’d not read or heard before, which was a great surprise!
I love the spaces @curtinuniversity have designed for students to read, relax and study around campus. This is one of my favourites – especially when a handsome man pops in to take you to lunch after he’s finished teaching classes for the morning!

About the Author

She/her. On Whadjuk Noongar land. NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
