Episode 18: Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore

In Shelf Awareness, a reviewer of Mattilda Berstein Sycamore's latest book "Sketchstasy" wrote, “If you've heard her read, you know Sycamore's voice is one in a zillion. She’s at her very best in Sketchtasy.” Click Play to (literally) hear for yourself. Largely self-educated and widely read, Mattilda is wise and whimsical. It's a magnetic combination. Her reading story takes an important turn when she moves to San Francisco at 19 and meets a vibrant queer community that loves to read as much as she does.
