The Book Report: Anne Nesbet

Courtesy of Anne Nesbet

For the Book Report we ask Bay Area writers to tell us about a book that’s meaningful for them. Today we hear from Berkeley-based writer Anne Nesbet, as she discusses The Wicked and the Just, by J. Anderson Coats.


NESBET: I'm fascinated by stories about cultures that are in collision and about places where there are very radically different points of view on what's happening.

Nesbet’s third novel for children, The Wrinkled Crown, just came out in November. To find out more about upcoming book readings, visit her website.

The Book Report is brought to you by the Litography Project, which is sharing the stories of the Bay Area’s literary culture and history. Find more Litography stories here.
