In my recent addiction to food-focused travel TV, I've learned a bit about Queen of Creole Cuisine Leah Chase and how she literally fed the '60s civil rights movement and wow what a queen indeed. Could be an awesome PB bio subject...👀 #MSWL

I would kill to read a heady literary mystery about a character who slowly loses it in a shoddily disguised replica of the Love Island villa that turns increasingly hellish. Does this exist? Can someone write it? #mswl

Can somebody write a picture book about the Argentinian parakeets that live in Green-Wood Cemetery and their colorful history? I am their biggest fan #MSWL

I'm also acquiring the select picture book! I'm looking for heartfelt stories about marginalized folks' experiences, nonfiction bios, and laugh-out-loud pbs with sneaky adult humor.

- BIPOC rom-coms, friend-coms, and coming-of-age stories not exclusively centered around POC trauma
- Sweeping historical fiction / magical realism, especially stories about non-white history

Maybe I’ve been reading too much news lately, but… #MSWL: SF & fantasy where characters’ core political/policy positions evolve over the course of the story, not because they’ve discovered a *conspiracy,* but because they’ve educated themselves about communities and their needs.

#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.
