Listen to my conversation with Award-winning WWII author Linda Thompson. We discuss Linda’s debut novel, The Plum Blooms in Winter, as well as her upcoming release of The Mulberry Leaf Whispers on December 15! Linda’s novels focus on WWII in the Japanese theater.

We talk about the concerning trend of cancel culture and the unfortunate side-effects of canceling history. Our discussion also winds around to the Japanese internment camps in the U.S. and some of the mistakes our nation has made.
