“And it’s that sense of beautiful strangeness that I think I’m always looking for”: Joyce Hinnefeld and Kate Racculia in conversation. Hinnefeld’s new collection, The Beauty of their Youth, is out now from Wolfson Press.
Kate Racculia is a novelist living in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Her most recent book, Tuesday Moon Talks to Ghosts, is a screwball gothic adventure set in Boston, where she lived for many years. She is also the author of the novels Bellweather Rhapsody, winner of the American Library Association’s Alex Award, and This Must Be the Place. She has been a cartoonist, a planetarium operator, a movie and music reviewer, a coffee jerk, a bookseller, a designer, a finance marketing proposal writer, and a fundraising prospect researcher. She currently teaches online for Grub Street, works at the Bethlehem Area Public Library, and sings in the oldest Bach choir in America. Photo credit: Christa Neu
