Episode 57: Hayley Gold
October 4, 2022

Hayley Gold, a cartoonist with an interest in linguistics and puzzles, joins us for the next That Word Chat with Editor Mark Allen, on October 4.


Gold, based in New York has combined her varied interests in a debut graphic novel released this year, Letters to Margaret.

 

The book is told from two perspectives, and it has crossword puzzles built in for the reader to move the story along.

She says she is working on a sequel with several accomplished puzzle constructors, with both books focused on crosswords, language, and controversy regarding self-expression vs. sensitivity. She also tackles the representation issues that have been a topic for discussion in the world of crosswords recently.

Sign up below and then join us on Zoom for TWC 57 at 4:30 p.m. EDT (20:30 UTC):
