Writers on Writing

As 2018 wraps, Dewey Decibel revisits a few favorite interviews conducted at American Library Association conferences during the past year.

In Episode 33, American Libraries’ editors speak with an array of authors about the inspirations behind their new books and the importance of libraries in their lives. Interviews include actor Sally Field (In Pieces), Bill Nye the Science Guy (Jack and the Geniuses series), poet and novelist Elizabeth Acevedo (The Poet X), journalists Jonathan Eig (Ali: A Life) and Robert W. Fieseler (Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation), and activists Marley Dias (Marley Dias Gets It Done—and So Can You) and Patrisse Cullors (When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir).
