I had a really wonderful conversation with Tyler Lloyd of My Peace Corps Story. We talked about Peace Corps and becoming a writer, and all sorts of other things.
Check out the interview here: My Peace Corps Story
Come out to Gaithersburg on May 19. There will be a ton of cool writerly and readerly happenings. My panel--with Aminatta Forna and moderated by Susi Wyss--is at 1:15, and described this way: Two novels ask us to consider recognizing connections in a place that's not our own. Set in London's West African Ghanaian immigrant community, and in a East-African Kenyan Maasai village, explore unforeseen ways to find home and happiness.
