ENCORE: Author Kelly O’Connor McNees; “The Bullseye Principle” with G. Riley Mills
We revisit a conversation with Chicago author Kelly O’Connor McNees. Her novel, "Undiscovered Country," is a work of historical fiction about first Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and her relationship with journalist Lorena Hickok. And, Gary Mills joins us to talk about the art of communication.
The novel might be a fictionalized account, but both Roosevelt and Hickok had a real impact on American history - particularly as the New Deal was being developed. Kelly joined the show last year to tell us a little more about what life was like before programs like Social Security were created.
"I’m interested in the ways that fiction can help us learn a certain kind of truth that we can’t know through evidence and historical fact…emotional truths."— The 21st (@21stShow) August 1, 2019
