Interview with Donovan Hohn and Natalie Bakopoulos
With 2020 drawing to a close and the global pandemic soon approaching a year of existence, it is safe to say that almost everyone has had to make some major changes to their personal, social, and work lives. COVID-19 flipped us on our heads and we had to discover new ways to go about our days. These realities hold true for everyone, and this is no exception for Professors Donovan Hohn and Natalie Bakopoulos. Hohn, Wayne State University creative writing professor, former senior editor of Harper's Magazine, and author of New York Times Notable Book Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea, released his most recent book, The Inner Coast: Essays, this past June.
