Emily Asad: A Minnesotan Author

A native Minnesotan, nothing makes Emily happier than reading by the fireplace while it’s blizzarding outside. Her favorite authors include Tamora Pierce, Louisa May Alcott, and Frances Hodgson Burnett. As a veteran high-school English teacher, her favorite subject is British Literature, especially the Chaucer poems. As a juggler, she uses her students for guinea pigs to perform her short plays, and she often conducts a Jester Academy that teach kids to juggle and tell corny jokes. In her spare times, she bakes bread and studies chess.

  1. Janet, I’ve thoroughly eojnyed your posts about the various TED talks we heard in Waterloo in March. And I love your recommendation to your readers to not limit themselves to topics they’re already interested in. As Robert Louis Stevenson once said:The world is so full of a number of thingsI’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.
