After a fortuitous series of social media connections, Meredith Russo joins us for a chat that encompasses a little bit of class politics, a little bit of video gaming and a little bit of punning.
In addition to giving us an overview of her career, Meredith tells us about the ways that fiction is always already autobiography, how her work addresses the traditional depictions of the American South and why we expect trauma (but not romance) in trans YA narratives.
Plus: Meredith's "secret plan" to turn up the heat on cis readers with each successive book, rants about the watering down of YA and also…the ridiculousness of Rent, the musical!
