Meia Geddes

Goodreads Author

Hefei, China

Member Since
March 2017

Meia Geddes was born in Hefei, China, left to be discovered in a public place most likely due to China's former one-child policy. After two years in an orphanage and foster care, she was adopted and raised by her mother in Sacramento, California. Geddes is the author of a collection of lyrical missives addressed to the world as body, concept, and stranger, Love Letters to the World (2016), as well as a novella, The Little Queen (2017). Like Love Letters to the World, The Little Queen is, at its heart, about being a human in the world. Geddes received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and has been the recipient of a Fulbright grant to South Africa. She resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“I will treat language with resigned delight, embrace it like unrequited love, offer words to you with a kind of secret shame, for I know that sometimes there is such a thing as too much language, and that language can hold a kind of sincerity that is tiresome and overwrought.”
Meia Geddes, Love Letters to the World

Meia Geddes, Love Letters to the World
