“They see each other for the first time” Minh Lê on DRAWN TOGETHER
Travis: It was a pleasure to sit down with Minh Lê and talk about how his book with Dan Santat, Drawn Together, came to be.
In this episode Minh talks about how the story was born in a 3:00 am brainstorming session with a fussy baby, and how the language barrier between the main characters connects to his own life.
We hope you enjoy the episode.
