When Francesca Lia Block‘s Weetzie Bat was published in 1989, it was more than beautifully written... it was progressive in its content! It explores identity, sexuality, addiction, and AIDS, and is a celebration of transcendent love, acceptance, and inclusivity. I welcomed author/illustrator Maia Kobabe to my podcast to discuss this gem of a book further! We chat about queer themes, cancel culture, and found family. Link to listen in bio!
