On religion and anxiety with Emily Austin
Emily Austin has thought a great deal about religion and anxiety in her life. Growing up in a blended religious household, she saw first hand the ways religion can affect how we interact with one another. It left her questioning her beliefs and her heart and, eventually, led to the powerfully beautiful novel, Everyone in this room will someday be dead.
In this discussion, Adam and Emily discuss their respective unique religious upbringings, the inconsistencies of what people pick and choose to talk about, Jegaysus, writing about and through anxiety, and her exciting new project that was announced in Publishers’ Marketplace!
