Q & A with Rachel Louise Snyder

img_1267.jpgJournalist Rachel Louise Snyder visited Book Culture last night to read from her new book, Fugitive Denim: A Moving Story of People and Pants in the Borderless World of Global Trade. She was joined by Scott Hahn, creator of designer organic denim labels Rogan and Loomstate, who participated in the discussion/Q&A with the audience after Rachel’s reading.

Before the event we had a few moments with Rachel, who graciously agreed to answer a few questions for us:

What books are you currently reading?

The History of Love. And I just finished the Iliad. I can’t wait to get to The Odyssey – I’m really inspired now. I’m also looking forward to reading Andre Dubus III’s 2008 release, The Garden of Last Days.

Do you have standard titles or writers you like to recommend?

Anything by Dubus or John McPhee, or Ted Conover or Erik Larson. I also enjoyed Adrian Nicole LeBlanc’s Random Family. Oh, and The Omnivore’s Dilemma too!

What is your favorite book ever?

Well, one of my top three is definitely Annie Proulx’s The Shipping News
