We’re so thrilled that Quan Barry will join us for this year’s virtual Opus & Olives gala. In preparation for the big event, we asked Quan a few questions to help you get to know her better.
Tell us something that people might not know about you.
Actually, lots of people who know me know this. I love Pictionary but I. Can. Not. Draw. To. Save. My. Life.
What do you want people to know about this book?
The book may be set in the 1980s in a town on the North Shore of Boston, but even if you don’t know what the Route 1 Orange T-Rex dinosaur is, you’ll hopefully still find much to like.
Tell us what you love about libraries.
I love wringing every last drop out of a good book, and then being able to “pass it on,” i.e. return it, and know that someone else will get a chance to enjoy it, plus as an added bonus, my house will remain a Marie Kondo-esque fortress of order and harmony.
