I spoke with Hillary Frank at WNYC’s The Longest Shortest Time about trying to write about postpartum depression.
I did an interview with the wonderful writer M. Molly Backes. Talking with her is a dream. It’s up today at The Rumpus; all my thanks to editors Martha Bayne and Zoe Zolbrod.
Once I Was Cool is a finalist for the Chicago Writers Association Book of the Year Award in Traditional Nonfiction, along with the wonderful Arnie Bernstein AND my dear friend Samantha Irby, whose essay collection, MEATY, is one of the best things I’ve ever read. I couldn’t be more grateful to be in their company.
I spoke a bit at Poets & Writers about my experience working with Curbside Splendor. It’s a great article, including interviews with authors from several excellent indie presses. Thanks to Kevin Larimer for shining this light on our work, and to Victor Giron at Curbside for his kind words about Once I Was Cool.
The wonderful Emily Schultz interviewed me for Joyland Magazine’s Truth and Fiction podcast.
I’m interviewing Cheryl Strayed for The Chicago Humanities Festival. I’ll try to ask profound and thoughtful questions but let’s be real: I might just high-five her onstage for an hour.
I recorded Channel B for Radio National Australia. You can listen here.
Once I Was Cool was featured in Late Night Library’s Late Night Debut series. Mel Wells and Candace Opper discussed the book and interviewed me about oral storytelling, social media, literary communities and Wild Turkey.
