In the good times and the bad times, where do you look for wonder? Kate Nason is a writer, artist, and storyteller who has lived an unbelievable life. Our conversation begins with what she is learning while writing her second book: discovering past family secrets as she pieces together the story by working with a genealogist. From there, we go on a journey of art history, collage, and memoir, learning to balance the past, present, and future and finding meaning in what befalls us. She shares her writing process—working with scenes and making collages to get unstuck—and learning how to trust herself.
