At just seventeen years old, Ruby Karp has accomplished more than some do in a lifetime. She's a published author, as well as an up and coming comedian in New York City. Ruby was kind enough to stop by the 106.7 Lite fm studios to talk with Helen Little on The Public Library podcast. The two discussed how Ruby came to write a book at such a young age and what she wishes adults writing for teens knew.
Ruby also did a powerful reading from Earth Hates Me during the interview, which you simply must listen to. In the section Ruby read from, she recounted a time in class when she disagreed with a teacher about how serious issues like rape should be discussed at school. Ruby's words - and her reading of it - will stick with you for a long time.
Listen to the full episode above to hear more from Ruby about her unmissable debut Earth Hates Me. We can't wait to see what she does next.
