Brandon Kelly I'd never seen the author before this webcast and it was very nice to put a face with the amazing and gifted voice she brings to her work. I have heard her on NPR recently and was very impressed by her abilities to relate her process and the pieces of herself that influence the books she writes. I count the Poisonwood Bible as one of my favorite books. I wish that I had heard about this webcast and had been able to submit questions in real time. Regards, Brandon


Graham Thank-You Barbara Kingsolver!

John Needham Yes, wonderful to hear and see an author I happened upon by chance courtesy of BBC radio. As someone already sympathetic to the subject of climate change I was always going to be receptive to Flight Behavior, but it inspired and moved me even so. A lovely book; I certainly want to read more of barbara Kingsolver
