About Beth

Beth Manor

Beth Manor’s favorite word is melancholy. Her hobbies are photographing flowers and reading books. She wrote “The Book on the Bus” as a love letter to the small fascinations that provide a reprieve from the otherwise unbearable. Not every classroom is a sanctuary, but her creative writing classrooms often were. Spring 2023 concludes her higher education.
