Write On! Radio

Tuesday July 29th, we speak with Catherine Clark about her new YA novels: How to Meet Boys and Unforgettable Summer. She's also the author of Love and Other Things I'm Bad At and Maine Squeeze.

And we'll chat with Edan Lepucki about her debut speculative fiction novel California. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop and a staff writer for The Millions, and she is the founder and director of Writing Workshops Los Angeles.
