Highlighted Voices - Neurodivergent Authors and Stories

Highlighted Voices

NEURODIVERGENT AUTHORS AND STORIES

We are so excited to announce the arrival of a new section here at Napa Bookmine! Our Highlighted Voices section will feature a rotating selection of titles highlighting underrepresented and marginalized voices. Each month, the crew will put their heads together to choose a new set of voices we would love to share with our customers. This month, we are celebrating neurodivergent authors and stories.

Seanan McGuire, who, in her own words, ‘was diagnosed autistic in 2020, which surprised absolutely no one, and is not a useful thing to use when trying to mock me. You can do better.’ is a multi-dimensional author who genre-hops with ease. Her books are filled with beautiful, thoughtful representations of neurodiversity, sexual orientation, gender, and more. One of our favorites of hers (and a staff pick!) is Every Heart a Doorway.

Undeterred by her dyslexia, Octavia Butler began writing as a child and would often be seen with a notebook under her arm. She was first published at only 13 years old, and would go on to become one of the most influential and prolific science fiction writers of all time. Choosing only one of her books that we love is hard, but Parable of the Sower is Naomi’s personal favorite, and it is also on Elayna's Climate Change Reading List.

What is there to say about Patrick Rothfuss that hasn’t already been said? This author with ADHD is one of the most recognizable voices in fantasy right now. Many say having ADHD is like having a superpower, and we have to agree. The Kingkiller Chronicle Series is vast, lush, and entirely epic. Check out the first in the series, The Name of the Wind–you won’t regret it!
