We have just launched our new reading theme this May-June: The Universal Republic of Childhood.
I am happy to resurrect our Academic Nook by inviting a higher degree student of mine at the NIE to contribute an essay about reading. I am also excited to feature another author from the Philippines for Meet the Storyteller. Welcome to GatheringBooks!
Meet the Storyteller: Sophia Lee
Sophia N. Lee wanted to be many things growing up: doctor, teacher, ballerina, ninja, crime-fighting international spy, wizard, time traveler, journalist, and lawyer. She likes to think she can be all these things through writing. She loves words and the meanings behind them. Her favorite word is chance. What Things Mean is her first book. She lives in Manila, Philippines. Learn more about her at www.sophianlee.com.
Academic Nook: Tanya He
Tanya He is a research assistant and Masters in Education English Language student at the National Institute of Education, Singapore. Having spent many years in classrooms trying to nurture a love for books and literature, she is particularly interested in reading and education. More than just reading for information, she would like her students to read for pleasure. Her other loves include her husband, furbaby (toy poodle), animal welfare causes, running, swimming and baking.
