Though sociology and forensic psychology will always be among Bethany Morrow’s passions, writing has been a lifelong endeavor for her. Whether in her YA or adult market novels, novellas, short stories, or short film scripts, Bethany’s speculative fiction uses a focus on character and language to engage with, comment on, and investigate worlds not unlike our own. Bethany’s debut YA novel, A Song Below Water, is about two sister-friends discovering their magical identities against the challenges of misogynoir. Stuck in Portland, Oregon, a city with only a handful of black folk and even fewer with magical powers, Tavia finds herself at odds with the world. At least she has her bestie, Effie, by her side. But in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation, no secret seems safe anymore – soon Portland won’t be either.
In conversation for this event is fellow writer Dhonielle Clayton. A former elementary and middle school librarian, and co-founder of CAKE Literary, Dhonielle is the author of The Belles, The Everlasting Rose, and other stories.
