Jamie Beth Cohen's Wasted Pretty is a YA novel set in 1992, a year in which grunge, indie pop, and new wave all seemed to get along. In a special live event at Lancaster's own Tellus 360 this past August, Cohen teamed up with local musician Liz Fulmer to present "Come As You Are," a concert during which Cohen read from her novel and Fulmer (and friends) played music from the period. In this episode, Cohen and Fulmer talk about their collaborative effort, what music can mean for teenagers, and why songs written by men can have very different impact when they're sung by women.
