S.5 Ep. 7 — “We Are Not Free.”

In this episode, I talked to YA author Traci Chee about her book We Are Not Free, JMRL’s Same Page selection for 2022. We talked about Traci’s personal connection to the novel and how it was to create, write, and imagine the 14 teens who serve as narrators and protagonists. If you haven’t already read We Are Not Free, make sure to do so before March 17th, when Traci will be joining us for our mainstage Same Page event

Read the books Traci mentioned in our interview: 

Citizen 11360 by Mine Okubo 

They Called Us Enemy by George Takei 

Displacement by Kiku Hughes

We Are Not Free read alikes compiled by JMRL staff.
