We interview adrienne maree brown, author, Octavia E. Butler scholar, podcast host, and doula, about her new novella Grievers. We also get into the connection between organizing and speculative fiction, amb’s deep love of Butler and Ursula LeGuin, and the power of creativity. Don’t worry, we also dish on queerness and it’s transformative power in fiction and life.
