#MSWL for my NF writing friends. I am always, always open to stories about food and drink, especially those with a bit of a quirk to them like this!

Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.

First up, FOOD, because we've established how much I want to both eat it and read about it. I love food books that explore forgotten histories, take deep dives into one particular aspect, or that look at how food cultures intermingle and change one another. #mswl

Evergreen #mswl: books about food! Cookbooks, food histories, food + race, food + gender, food + basically anything. FOOD.

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl

Nonfiction: books about food (always!), travel, history, art, and culture. I love to see projects that show the intersections of these topics. For instance, I'd love to see one on food deserts in America and how they disproportionately affect minority communities. #mswl

I'm also always interested in deep dives into particular subjects. Think quirky like Mary Roach or food-related like Mark Kurlansky. #mswl

In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl

In narrative nonfiction, I'd love to see more food-centered books, especially those exploring forgotten aspects of our food history or that look at the intersections of race, feminism, and food. Think THE COOKING GENE or WHAT SHE ATE.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.
