In January, USQ interviewed author and quidditch player Ana Meriano about her new book, This is How We Fly.
Anna Meriano has been playing quidditch for several years, first with the college team at Rice University, and most recently with the club team Houston Cosmos. She has authored This is How We Fly, about a high-school graduate who joins a local quidditch league. This is How We Fly came out in December. The book has received starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews as well as Publisher’s Weekly. You can purchase it anywhere books are sold. You can also check it out from your local library. If a copy isn’t available, you can request one and the library will order it for you.
In January, Meriano sat down with USQ Executive Director Mary Kimball for a book club style interview about her new novel, the writing process, and how her experiences in quidditch shaped the events of the book. The video and transcript from the interview are now available.
