Kristen Green

Host Robin Farmer talks to author Kristen Green about her New York Times best-selling debut “Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County.” The novel is a personal look at what happened in her hometown after the landmark Supreme Court ruling Brown v. Board of Education. Instead of complying with the ruling to desegregate its public schools, Prince Edward County closed them – for five years. Kristen discusses her reasons for writing the book, her conflicting feelings as her research revealed her grandfather’s involvement in the battle, and her advice for local non-fiction writers.  (25 minutes)
