Bekah grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to Olympia in the fall of 2016 to pursue her undergraduate degree at The Evergreen State College. When she is not working at the bookshop or the hospital or studying-- you can find her needle felting the microcosms of her imagination or eating shrimp tacos at QB. She loves to get lost within depressive forms of literature-- recommending the light and fluffy has been a welcomed challenge.

Hopkinson's stories tend to bore a small hole in your heart and rest there long after you have finished reading. The ordinary is blended with the magical and the horrific. "The Glass Bottle Trick" is my favourite.
