Not Another Book Podcast is brutally honest, nuanced, and witty. The show is the third podcast to launch from the ShoutOut Network’s ‘Next Generation of Voices’ lineup. Hosted by BooksAndRhymes, bookshybooks and PostColonialChild, the trio want to help the publishing industry evolve and shape what future literature critics look and sound like.
Their special guest for this live recording is Tomi Adeyemi, author of Children of Blood and Bone - an epic fantasy with an eye toward the reality of contemporary racial and socioeconomic power dynamics, drawing upon African history and mythology to tell a story of characters contending with colour, status and they want to be defined in a culture of fear.
Tomi Adeyemi is a Nigerian-American writer and creative writing coach. After graduating Harvard University with an honors degree in English literature, she received a fellowship that allowed her to study West African mythology and culture in Salvador, Brazil. When she’s not working on her novels or watching “Scandal,” she can be found blogging and teaching creative writing. @tomi_adeyemi
