In this episode we sit down with Leigh Stein, author of the novel The Fallback Plan, a book of poems, Dispatch From The Future, and co-host of the reading series[with Sasha Fletcher] The Book Report. We talked with Leigh about writing memoir, dealing with trauma/grief and how that affects the process of writing, her new venture called BinderCon, standing up to online misogyny in the literary community, and a gang of other things–including Civil War reenactments. We can safely say this: Leigh is rad, and you should check out everything she does.
