Synopsis: Anna-Marie McLemore sits down to discuss her debut Young Adult novel The Weight of Feathers and its forthcoming follow-up When the Moon Was Ours. Many important topics are discussed, including the current state of diversity in fiction, the process and fears of writing characters of different cultures and identities, and whether authors should write outside their own identities.
In honor of my recent trip to Austin, TX, links to all books discussed in this episode will go to the BookPeople bookstore, the largest independent bookstore in Texas.
