Fiction Focus with Michelle Shocklee

Feb 3, 2023 | Book Club, Steady On


Lisa and Maria joined me to talk with Michelle Shocklee about how unemployed writers during the Great Depression were put to work writing the narratives of former slaves through the Federal Writers Project. We loved Michelle and how she weaved that history into her beautiful novel, “Under the Tulip Tree.”
