Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."
Episode Twenty-Two: When Your Book Becomes a Movie Featuring Eden Robinson
Acclaimed author and wonderful human Eden Robinson is here to discuss what it's like to have your book turned into a movie! Eden chats with Mica about what a mind trip it is to visit a film set and hear actors saying lines you wrote, and why she ultimately prefers writing novels over screenplays. Eden also talks about why she chose her home town of Kitamaat Village as the setting for the book and movie version of Monkey Beach, and why pipelines are such a fraught issue in northern coastal towns. She also teases her upcoming trashy band council romance novel, and doesn't that sound great?
