I’m back with more of those CAN’T MISS interviews with writers and booksellers that run each week on A Mighty Blaze. (Missed my previous post about this? Here’s the link where you can see my interviews with Judy Blume, Ann Patchett, Lily King, Janet Fitch, and Marjan Kamali.)
As a quick reminder, A Mighty Blaze is a volunteer effort of writers and creatives who love books and storytelling and authors and bookstores. We work to bring attention to these essential parts of our culture, during COVID-19 and beyond. Authors Love Bookstores is a weekly Facebook Live program, highlighting indie bookstores across the US and Canada and the authors who love these stores.
MARGARET WILKERSON SEXTON! I can’t stop thinking about Margaret’s novels, A KIND OF FREEDOM and THE REVISIONERS. They’re the kind of stories that get in under your skin and stay with you always. Featured bookstore: A Great Good Place for Books, Oakland, CA
REBECCA MAKKAI! We lost Rebecca mid-way through the interview (damn those technical difficulties!), but she rallied and came right back, making for some good live entertainment. Featured bookstore: Madison Street Books, Chicago, IL
