Breaking Silence, featuring Terese Marie Mailhot

This week’s episode is not only about breaking silence, but also about the ways that silence is often a pile-on due to multiple layers of silencing. This week’s guest, Terese Mailhot, author of Heart Berries, is the ideal author to wall us through what makes breaking silence both difficult and compelling for writers. We also touch upon cultural appropriation, marginalizing and compartmentalizing voices, and the complexities of being raised by a radical mother.
