Episode details

How do brief encounters with strangers change us? In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, I speak with essayist, teacher, and editor Colleen Kinder who has just published Letter to a Stranger: Essays to the Ones Who Haunt Us. In the interview, Ms. Kinder talks about: How she came up with the idea to do a book of letters about encounters with strangers from a meeting with Pico Iyer The different ways someone may be considered a stranger Travel writing vs. stories of place Why sometimes we are able to tell truths to strangers that we may not tell to people who know us well How brief encounters with people who don't know well or at all can profoundly change our lives For more about Colleen Kinder’s work visit and For more interviews, kickass women writers, artists, healers, and activists, subscribe to the Disobedient Femmes Podcast at the link below.
