Last September, I interviewed writer and musician Sarah Pinkser on her speculative fiction novel A Song for a New Day. The premise of her novel should sound eerily familiar to all of us now: A global pandemic makes public gatherings illegal and for musicians -- concerts are impossible and become a thing of the past. It’s been hard to listen to the news the past few weeks without thinking about Sarah’s book, so I checked in with her to find out what’s been on her mind now that her novel and real-life events are unfolding in parallel. Listen to an excerpt of our interview from last fall, and hear what’s been on Sarah's mind now that her novel and real-life events are unfolding in parallel.
