141: Aminatou Sow & Ann Friedman (BIG FRIENDSHIP + CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND) & Octavia Butler’s PARABLE OF THE SOWER

The Zoomin’ Damn Library welcomes the good friends and co-hosts of Call Your Girlfriend, Aminatou Sow & Ann Friedman, who are both now newly minted authors of Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close. So of course we talk friendship, and how the scientific studies weren’t quite there like they thought it would be, and how you write a book together, and about being honest about the hard stuff. Plus, we get to talk about how great Octavia Butler is, and how prescient Parable of the Sower is. Listen up!
