Last Spring, Kevin Moffett was one of the ACTC Visiting Writers here at Hamline University and Runestone was honored to have three members of our editorial board conduct his public interview in April.
We are all very proud of the great work Deziree Brown, Paul Patane, Sophia Myerly, and Mariela Lemus put in to bring this interview to life and grateful for Kevin Moffett’s time and thoughtful answers to our questions.
