A New Episode of the Narrative Breakdown & My NYPL Panel on Native American YA Literature

Guess what? Those two things in my subject line are one and the same thing! We have a new episode of the Narrative Breakdown up, which also happens to be a recording of a panel I mentioned many moons ago:   me, fellow editor and publisher Stacy Whitman, and our authors Eric Gansworth and Joseph Bruchac, respectively, discussing their books If I Ever Get Out of Here and Killer of Enemies, respectively. It was a really great, meaty, interesting conversation (IMO) about how Stacy and I came to edit these books, editor-author relationships in general, writing YA, privilege, and cross-cultural publishing. And now you can see a writeup of it from Publishers Weekly at this link, and listen to the full recording here. Thanks for checking it out!


  1. Excellent, Will you be doing regular podcasts again? We have missed them.

  2. I really like this post! Good share. My two favorites were:
    "Use the talents you possess, for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except the best." -- Henry van Dyke


    "The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    But they were all good insights to reflect on!
