Fictional Teens Vs. Real-Life Monsters

When two fictional characters are given an offensive assignment at school, the morals of the community are called into question. Author and educator Liza Wiemer joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about her YA novel featuring students who must use Nazi propaganda in a debate, the courage it takes for two teenagers to confront anti-Semitism, and the real-life examples the author drew from. Her book is called “The Assignment.”
