Description
Andrew Winer discusses his novel, “The Color Midnight Made.” He begins by explaining that his novel is about a young boy who is a victim of child abuse and befriends a blind boy. Martinson asks Winer to read a passage from the book about how the blind boy can imagine colors in his head. He talks about how his main character is scared that his colorblindness will make him permanently blind in the future. Winer describes the struggles in the book between the friends who are different races, and how their families try to split them part. He ends the interview by discussing his own background as a white person growing up in a predominantly black community, and his role of both an insider and outsider.
