Nightcrawling – Oakland Youth Laureate’s Explosive Book w/ Leila Mottley

On today’s show, we’ll be in conversation with Oakland’s young rising star author Leila Mottley, who at just 20 years old published a bestselling novel called Nightcrawling, whose story is grounded in a trafficking and rape scandal by the Oakland Police department. Just a few years ago our guest was Oakland’s youth poet laureate, and catapulting into the spotlight, she’s now become the youngest author to ever be selected for Oprah’s book club.
