Hear five prose writers discuss their work: Chauna Craig (The Widow's Guide to Edible Mushrooms) Jamie Harrison (The Widow Nash), Caroline Patterson (Ballet at the Moose Lodge), Alexandra Teague (The Principles Behind Flotation), and Milana Marsenich (Copper Sky). In short stories and novels, contemporary and historical, these five writers have explored the lives of women: women who reinvent themselves to escape emotional damage; women who negotiated the tricky waters of small towns, girls who bear witness to strained family dynamics.
