Our contributor Mark Newton loved Emily T. Wierenga’s striking memoir, Atlas Girl and said as much in his review. So when presented with the opportunity to chat with the author herself, we jumped at it. The result is an engaging conversation that examines the book’s central theme of finding home. In addition, Emily discusses the role of art in her upbringing, the challenge of self-promotion, and the non-profit she recently founded, The Lulu Tree.
