In today's episode I talk with author Stephanie Cotsirilos about her novella "My Xanthi" and about what she calls a new hero: the elder migrant woman. We also talk about our family histories and how their stories affect us even today. We talk a lot about immigration, our forebears, and the power of story and loving across cultures. This is one of the most beautiful interviews I've experienced, and I can't wait for you to hear from the gentle wisdom of my guest today!
