About Akwaeke
There’s something to having access to other worlds or other realities that is also about possibility. For a lot of people, and especially for young readers, there’s a thing where you read something and there’s more possibility. It kind of opens doors for you, and you can be like, ‘I’m living in this world, but through fiction, I’m introduced to this concept of possibility.’ Then that allows you to think of how you can introduce that possibility into your own world, and how that world can then expand. It gives people more options, and I think that’s what people find freeing about reading.
