The R Word

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to talk about my young adult novel, The R Word, with John Drew for his Sci-Fi/Pop-Culture website, The Chronic Rift. The R Word explores contemporary attitudes about race through the eyes of a white, teen-aged girl who begins to think about race, and about her own position of privilege, for the first time.

Although The Chronic Rift usually highlights the otherworldly works of the science fiction/fantasy realm, John’s secret identity is that of a high school English teacher, which explains his interest in The R Word. Here’s the link to the interview for anyone who might be interests:
