This week’s guests are moderators (and contributors). Letters to a writer of color. Hear the deeply insightful and inspiring origin story that led Deepa Anapara and Taymor Soomro to collaborate on their powerful anthology. Contributors to this collection include Keys Lehmann, Miriam Kurba, Madeleine Thien, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, and others. Our conversation this week discusses how writers of color write, speak, and translate their experiences, how writers can be assimilated and how they refuse to be assimilated, and the power of commonalities across experiences, even when those experiences are so diverse. .
