Cinda Williams Chima

Interviews, etc.

This past summer I spent an afternoon Vlogging with Angelamarie Malkoun, a student and Woodrow Wilson fellow at Johns Hopkins University. The focus of her felllowship research is Young Adult fantasy literature from the 19th through the 20th century. At her YouTube channel (Angelamarie Malkoun) you will find her Vlogs with Kendare Blake, Tamora Pierce, and Amy Ewing.  Angie is the kind of person who exemplifies why teens should never be underestimated. Here are links to YouTube videos of our interviews.
