With all the books out there to discover, it’s understandable that so many feel it’s a waste of time to reread something they’ve already read. Sally shares why she loves rereading books and what she learns when she does it.
Speaking of revisiting the past, Ashley interviewed Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, author of “On the Rooftop”. Ashley asked about writing characters who dream and own their voice, using food as gathering and remembrance of family, how the characters nourish themselves, and writing about gentrification in 1950s San Francisco.
