DIVERSE READING...

I love conversations, especially those about my books…
Preparing for lunch, I saw one of the young biologists in my office in the restroom,
She is thirty, a bit shy and white…no that doesn’t matter usually, but, stay with me…
She asked me if she could come and talk to me,
We do that periodically, about many things,
And it had been a while, so I told her I was eating at my desk today, so come on down…
She walked in and closed the door…I inwardly groaned, thinking this was going to be a budgeting or personnel issue…all of a sudden my spinach and chicken didn’t look as inviting, I wanted a cheeseburger…anyway…she grinned, saying, ‘I loved SCHAE’S STORY…all of a sudden my appetite was back…
We chatted vigorously for about twenty minutes, laughing and giggling, then she sobered up, thanking me…
She thanked me for telling her about my books and allowing her to learn about my culture, something she admitted she would not have done had it not been me…but, here is the beauty…she told me that now she read other AA authors…YAY…
I thanked her and then told her what a time we as black authors have getting other races to read our work…a light dawned in her eyes, realizing how much she had revealed and how much it all meant…I smiled telling her that, ‘we don’t know, until we know, now she needed to go out and tell others…’
She promised me she would,
And I believe her,
And not just because the next time it might be a budget or personnel issue!

Love!
Angelia

What a feel good story; thanks for sharing. So glad to hear that a non-colored person read your book and enjoyed. As the word spreads, there will be more. Yippee...and that's a good thing because our stories are meant to be shared and read by all.

This is great. It's good to know when someone outside of our culture or race reads and can appreciate the books written by us.

One by one, slowly they will come once they realize that all of our story paths cross at one time or another.
