Bookreporter Talks To

Apr 28, 2023

Kristin Hannah joined Carol Fitzgerald for a “Bookaccino Live” Book Group discussion of her novel, THE FOUR WINDS. Kristin shared her research process, which consists of a year of reading everything she can get her hands on about her chosen topic --- including memoirs --- to give her insight into the time period. She talked about discovering that Elsa was her protagonist, not her daughter Loreda, and how that meant abandoning hundreds of pages of writing. And she revealed the very interesting way that she came up with the title of the book. Readers chimed in on and off camera with terrific questions that made for a robust discussion.
