“It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times.” – Nina Simone.

Fiction isn’t just an outlet to plug into to escape reality for a while. It’s a mirror of everything happening around us. We take more from the characters than we realize and see more of our lives in the stories than we know. Best-selling authors E Lockhart (We Were Liars), Adam Silvera (History Is All You Left Me), Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows), and Jennifer E. Smith (Windfall) sit down to talk about the importance fiction plays in our world today and the messages being sent in their writing.
