Listen in on authors Alexander Chee and Rebecca Solnit as they explore the topics of writing and activism to seeds and gardening in Bookable's first bonus episode.
The authors of Bookable have the most amazing friends. We wondered what would happen if we asked a former Bookable guest to choose an author they admire and interview them. In our first bonus episode, Alexander Chee talks to Rebecca Solnit. Writer, historian, and activist Solnit is the author of more than twenty books on feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, hope and disaster, including her latest book, just out, entitled Recollections of My Nonexistence.
