Home Plate: Fictionalizing Familiar Places at Kazoo Books

Authors Kelly Fordon, Laura Hulthen Thomas, and Lolita Hernandez discuss how their fiction transforms home into character. How do writers use assumptions about familiar places to find the unexpected and surprising? When is a hometown the whole trouble, and also the last, best hope for change? We'll also talk about how the unique landscape of the upper Midwest inspires our fiction.
