Nicola Yoon, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, visits the show to talk about her first adult novel, “One of Our Kind.” Described as “Get Out” meets “The Stepford Wives,” the thriller explores race and privilege through the story of a Black couple, Jasmyn and King Williams, who move their family to the planned Black utopia of Liberty, California.

However, Jasmyn finds herself at odds with the community’s focus on luxury and self-care instead of social justice issues. As she uncovers a shocking secret about Liberty’s founders, she must confront the complicated nature of freedom and the presumptions we make about ourselves and others.
