Podcast - Cornelia Nixon
O'Henry and Pushcart winner Cornelia Nixon stops by to talk about her third novel Jarrettsville. Jarrettsville starts of with a woman murdering a man in front of dozens of witnesses on the fourth anniversary of the surrender at Appomatox. Jarrettsville is a small town in northern Maryland that had divided sympathies during and after the Civil War, which Nixon's book deftly explores. Book Talk each Saturday evening at 6:00 p.m. on FM 89.3 WYPL Memphis.
