HerStory 2022 / April Colorway: Broken Earth Author: N.K. Jemisin
From Knitted Wit:
For our April HerStory, we are heading to some other-worldly reading withNK Jemisin, who is widely considered to be the best of the best inscience fiction. She's a best-seller, an award-winner (she won 3Hugo awards in a row, for all three books from herBroken EarthTrilogy), and is a MacArthur Genius. She's also an all-aroundbadass who centers Black voices in her stories and stands up toracists in the sci-fi community.
Jemisin's writing is considered both sci-fi and speculative fiction.Her world-building is full, brutal, and beautiful; it often comes to herin dreams.
We decided to channel the gorgeous covers of her Hugo-winning trilogy, Broken Earth, for our Broken Earth colorway. The vibrant blues and greens, paired with the earthy browns and greys are so evocative of the world-building Jemisin is so good at; we hope youvisit thoseworlds with us this month.
