DMA Arts & Letters Live: Kristin Hannah
From Kristin Hannah, the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone, comes an epic novel of love, heroism, and hope, set against the backdrop of one of America’s darkest eras - the Great Depression. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.
In 1934 Texas, Elsa Martinelli - like so many of her neighbors - must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. She faces an uncertain and dangerous time, when farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all.
Hannah will be in conversation with Sarah Bird. The recording will be available through February 24.
