The Reader, Anah
Anah is a PhD Student at York University studying Children’s and Young Adult (YA) Literature. She splits her time between Calgary and Toronto. She likes napping, watching Jane Austen movies and The Real Housewives (especially New Jersey and Beverly Hills), hiking in the Rocky Mountains, and of course reading, lots of reading.
The Listener, Wallace
Wallace is an eleven-year-old West Highland Terrier, Anah’s study companion and best friend. He’s helped her through a B.A. in English, a Master’s in Children’s and YA lit, and is hoping by the time he gets her through her PhD he’ll get his own honorary degree. He likes napping, protecting Anah’s home from squirrels, outside, walks, sniffing, and curling up on Anah’s lap while she reads.
Together Wallace and Anah have gone on adventures down the rabbit hole to Neverland and Oz, Narnia and Avonlea. They’ve studied at Hogwarts and Lowood School, and fearfully ventured through Panem’s Districts. They frequent Middle Earth and feel especially at home in the Shire. On this blog we’ll give tips of where to find these magical, terrifying, challenging, and inspiring places, and maybe you’ll want to read and visit some of them too.
