Quotation of the Week

Ursula K Le Guin, 'Genre: A Word Only a Frenchman Could Love: A talk given at the Public Library Association Preconference on Genre, in Seattle, February 2004, revised in 2014', in Words are My Matter: Writings About Life and Books, 2000-2016, with a Journal of a Writer's Week (2016)
