What is copaganda? And why do so many thrillers feel like copaganda? Mariquita and Renee discuss these questions plus how to spot copaganda in our literature. They also share some books that they loved that don’t pass the test and some great books that do.
In the second segment, Ashley interviews Diane Marie Brown, author of Black Candle Women. They discuss developing the multigenerational story of Black women, keeping the story grounded, dealing with a curse, and making a new home.
