In Brit Bennett’s National Book Award–longlisted novel The Vanishing Half, Desiree Vignes has always dreamed of leaving Mallard, a town so small it doesn’t even appear on the map. Desiree convinces her twin sister Stella to come with her, and the two skip town. Afterward, however, their personal journeys diverge in profound ways. Join Bennett as she discusses sisters’ lives sent spinning in wildly different directions.
