A Psalm for the Wild Built
A | BN | K
My guest this week is Becky Chambers, author of the Wayfarers series and the new novella, A Psalm for the Wild Built.

We talk about the book itself, and themes of caregiving and comfort, and the process of writing a book with the goal of sending a hug out into the world. Thank you to Malaraa and Molly from our Patreon community for the questions!
