The person of the day is James Baldwin, widely considered to be one of greatest writers to have ever lived.
In the news, Author Akwaeke Emezi Protests Women’s Prize Rules for their transphobic practices.
For project of the days, I’m going with An Unkindness of Ghosts by River Soloman.
Optional Topic: Halloween has been a favorite holiday among queer people so I ask this: What is Halloween to you?
