“Making Mistakes when Crossing Boarders in Fiction”

Enjoy this video interview with author Mitali Perkins as she shares her thoughts on “common mistakes I’ve seen when authors cross borders to tell stories.”  Mitali Perkins has written Bamboo People, Rickshaw Girl, Secret Keeper, Monsoon Summer, and Sunita Sen. 

Also take a moment to explore the rich and dynamic blog she has created, called Mitali’s Fire Escape in which she seeks to create a “safe space to talk about books between cultures.”
