There is a lot more important work to be done, but it didn’t seem right to ignore the white supremacist terrorist act last week in Atlanta, so Hannah invited Japanese-American author Misa Sugiura to the podcast to discuss some AAPI YA authors that are a little more under the radar than the ones you’ve heard of. One book for each author is linked; the show discusses the authors’ bodies of work.
