This week’s Inheritance Books are from Sonya Watson.
I moved to Canada when I was thirteen from Mandeville, Jamaica. I have only been writing seriously for four years but I have dabbled in writing since I was ten. I have a BA in Kinesiology and I am currently enrolled in the Culture and Heritage Site Management program. I hope to start an arts organization that helps artists get where they need to be in order to make a decent living. When I’m not in school, I am writing, running, dancing or watching television.
Heidi was the book I inherited. It was so long ago that I don’t remember who gave it to me. But I know that whenever life gets too hard this book helps me reconnect with my childhood.
Which book would you like to leave to future generations? Why?
I would leave The Tempest behind because William Shakespeare had this ability to pull people in with his sonnets. His words jump off the page and I wish I had half the talent he possessed.
