Podcast: Bestselling Author Sue Monk Kidd

| No Comments
Sue Monk Kidd, author of bestselling novels The Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair spoke on January 7, 2013 as part of AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary. Her new novel, The Invention of Wings, was released on the same day and has been selected for Oprah's Book Club 2.0.  Kidd, a compelling and expressive speaker, described her inspiration for writing about growing up female (slave and free) in antebellum Charleston.  According to Kidd, "There are a lot of cracks in history, and you'll find a lot of women in them."  The Grimke sisters and Hetty "Handful" Grimke were stuck in one of those cracks until Sue Monk Kidd discovered them, and discovered in herself the courage to yank them out.  Click on the link below to listen to (or download) the podcast from the evening.
