About Marie-Laure,

What book do you wish everyone would read and why?

Wonder by R. J. Palacio - although it’s primarily aimed at children, its message of fighting prejudice and celebrating what makes us unique will resonate with you no matter your age.

Who are your favourite authors?

I have far too many to list in entirety but some of them are Donna Tartt, Pat Barker, Jack Kerouac, Sebastian Faulks, Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemingway, and Kazuo Ishiguro.

Where is your favourite place to read?

On my bed, wrapped in a blanket with a festive candle burning.

What do you love most about Nottingham?

I think it’s the little things that I love the most. From taking a moment to appreciate the beautifully picturesque University Park campus in between seminars, to supporting our local music scene, to seeing my favourite small businesses thrive... I immediately felt at home when I moved here, and Nottingham will forever have a special place in my heart as my (home away from) hometown!

What career or industry do you hope to get into?

A creative industry!
