Banning books, waving flags and persecuting racial minorities. Sound familiar?

Celeste Ng’s third novel, Our Missing Hearts, is set in a marginally more dystopian version of Trump’s America as a patriotic new law removes children from dissident parents.

After New York Times–bestselling novel Little Fires Everywhere – which was adapted into a popular miniseries starring Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon – comes a similarly moving tale about the unbreakable bond between a mother and son.

Sit down with Celeste and host Claire Nichols to discuss hope, hero librarians and the power of art to create change.

Celeste Ng appears thanks to the suppport of Sam Meers AO.
