It’s Tuesday, which means a new episode of What Should I Read Next!
Today I’m talking with blogger, podcaster, and speaker Osheta Moore.
Osheta and I discuss the power of fiction, why she loves audiobooks (but only for certain kinds of stories), why she hates a certain much-beloved novel, and her Brown Girls Bookshelf project.
