How Do Authors Know Where to Start and End Their Stories? with Kate Raphael


How do authors know where to start and end their stories? If you’re writing a novel based on your own experience, do you have to do research?


What’s the difference between “Young Adult” and “Adult” fiction? Join me for an in-depth conversation with three wonderful writers: Malinda Lo, author of the National Book Award winner Last Night at the Telegraph Club, Yang Huang, Juniper Prize-winning author of My Good Son, and multiple Lambda nominee Lucy Jane Bledsoe, whose forthcoming No Stopping Us Now fictionalizes her adventures as a teen demanding (and winning) school sports programs for girls in Portland.

It's Valentine’s Day, and these authors say every book is ultimately about love.

The show also features music by Mary Lou's Apartment and Emma's Revolution (who are doing a Heart of the Revolution Valentine's Day concert tomorrow as well!).

Tune in Monday, February 14 at 1:00 p.m. PST on KPFA 94.1 FM in the Bay Area and online anywhere at kpfa.org. (After broadcast, catch it in the archives at http://kpfa.org/program/womens-magazine)

Also, next Monday, February 21, KPFA will be presenting a full day of special Black History Month programming (from 6:00 am - 6:00 pm). Be sure to tune in for that! And February 22, our winter pledge drive begins.  A pledge of any size during the Monday 1:00 pm hour lets the station know you value feminist voices and helps keep the station on the air in these critical times


Thanks for all your support.
