Beth’s Bookshelf Podcast: #6 Meredith Russo – If I Was Your Girl, Transgender Characters in Literature, and Art.

Today’s episode of Beth’s Bookshelf is going to be really interesting because I have Meredith Russo along with me to talk about her book; If I Was Your Girl.

If I Was Your Girl is a story that has meant to so much to people everywhere and is a huge inspiration. It was chosen by Zoella for her WHSmith book club, and is a huge hit on Goodreads! Meredith Russo is on the podcast today to talk about the process of writing the fantastic novel, the inspiration behind the plot and characters, and about the representation of transgender characters in literature. We also had a chat about how just because you’re an artist, particularly an artist belonging to a minority group, doesn’t mean it’s your responsibility to always talk about ‘the struggle’.

Meredith is an incredibly interesting writer and I can’t wait to see what other works she brings us. You can follow her for updates @Mer_Squared. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
