We speak with Carleton College graduate Helene Wecker about her debut novel The Golem & the Jinni, an immigrant tale that combines Jewish and Arab folk mythology.

We also chat with Sophie Cabot Black about her new poetry collection The Exchange. She is the author of two previous collections of poetry, The Descent, which won the Connecticut Book Award and The Misunderstanding of Nature, which won the Norma Farber First Book Award.
