In This Issue

Among this week's books, we review David Levithan's timely Answers in the Pages, in which a fifth-grader takes a stand as his mother attempts to ban a book due to its assumed gay protagonists. In Future Stories, David Christian takes a fascinating excursion into the future of humanity and our planet. And Kali Fajardo-Anstine's debut novel, Woman of Light, reaches back to the 1800s-1930s for an "extraordinary, many-threaded tapestry of multiple lives."

Fajardo-Anstine discusses in Writer's Life her research for Woman of Light, the importance of place and the necessity of family stories.
