Today I’m in Cambridge, Massachusetts speaking with Marika McCoola at Porter Square Books. Marika is the author of Baba Yaga’s Assistant, a YA graphic novel. In the second part of this episode, I chat with the author, Fran Hawthorne. Fran is a journalist and author of five non-fiction books: Ethical Chic, The Overloaded Liberal, Pension Dumping, Inside the FDA, and The Merck Druggernaut. Her most recent novel is The Heirs which asks the questions how many generations does guilt carry on and what did your grandparents do to my grandparents?
