This week's episode is sponsored by Scholastic. Check out the details in this week's episode about the giveaway contest Kirkus and Scholastic are doing for young adult writer Bill Konigsberg's latest novel, The Music of What Happens, plus our intriguing interview with Bill in this episode. And in our lead interview, we talk to Jacob Tobia. Life as a gender nonconforming person hasn't always been easy for Jacob Tobia, but it has come with a fair heap of fabulousness. On this week's podcast, the Los Angeles-based writer, producer, and performer joins us to discuss Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story, an incisive, sometimes fraught, often funny account of interrogating their identity and confronting gender-based trauma. Then our editors join with their top picks in books this week.
