What could be better than Mark Askwith in conversation with, well, just about anyone?

Here’s Mark in an engaging conversation with Sienna Tristen and Avi Silver at BookMarkIt! 2019 this past May. I’ll be posting several more such interviews (and readings) from BookMarkit! over the next month or so, just as soon as I can get them edited. Stay tuned!
