The book blogger hop is a weekly event usually hosted by Crazy-For-Books, but this weekend it’s being hosted by Lori’s Reading Corner. This is such a great way to meet like minded bloggers and revel in our mutual love of books.
This week’s question is:
“Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?”
It seems like all the authors I would die to meet are already dead. This is the unfortunate result of having my head buried in the classics for too long. Fortunately, I can still dream of meeting Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I remember reading One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in The Time of Cholera back to back, over a weekend many years ago and it was something of a revelation.
I would also love to meet Jhumpa Lahiri because I love the simplicity of her prose and the gentleness of her characters.
