Here’s another entry in the recent group of great Edward Kelsey Moore interviews on his books and his writing process. This one is hosted by
Ella Curry, who is head of her own highly motivating publicity empire, which includes the Black Authors Network (BAN). In this interview E.K.M. discusses a few of the areas that have been covered in other recent interviews -- but he also describes why his writing tends to explore the everyday lives of regular people, with less specific focus on the oppressions of black lives. To enjoy this warm and engaging audio interview click the button below. It is free of charge and lasts about 40 minutes.
