R. J. Anderson

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Canadian author, R. J. Anderson writes fantasy and science fiction for older children and young teens. Her latest North American release is Swift, the first in the Flight and Fame Trilogy. It’s a story of hope and aspiration, overcoming obstacles and…well…soaring beyond expectations. But it’s also a tale of faeries, piskeys and spriggons—oh and a couple of humans as well!

In this conversation, we explore perspective-taking, the differences between fantasy and science-fiction and much more.
