Episode 25: Interview with Quan Barry author of We Ride Upon Sticks

In this episode I interview author, poet, and professor Quan Barry.  Her book We Ride Upon Sticks is a time machine to not only 1989, but to anyone who remembers what it is like to be a teenage girl on the North Shore.  Based on a fictional 1989 Danvers field hockey team we see this team learn to be themselves and come into their own power.  This is a spoiler free discussion.
