Mette Ivie Harrison joins us to discuss creative non-fiction, the genre in which the tools of creative writing are applied to factually accurate narratives. Her latest book, Iron Mom, tells the story of how and why Mette became a triathlete. We talk about how those tools are applied, and where the line between fiction and non-fiction might be drawn.
