In this episode, we welcome Jefferson Shupe, author of the new YA novel, the Bathwater Brigade. Focusing on a college student’s journey through campus politics in the wake of a police shooting controversy, Bathwater Brigade explores the challenges and rewards of finding unity, and helping others find unity, in a time of hostility and division - something that might just be related to what we do here!
Throughout his conversation with UnityNow’s Kimberly Kolb Eakin, Shupe discusses his inspirations and motivations for writing the book, how the fictional Bathwater Brigade - a campus political unity group - resembles real-world efforts, and how his book has been embraced by young adults, children, and parents in search of a positive message. Finally, the two discuss lessons to be learned about what it takes to build common ground, and why it’s so important, both from the book’s titular Brigade and from Shupe’s writing journey.
