Elizabeth Strout and Marilynne Robinson on Small Town Settings

March 14, 2010

Elizabeth Strout just won the Pulitzer Prize for her book "Olive Kitteridge." Marilynne Robinson's most recent novel, "Home," was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her previous book, "Gilead," won the Pulitzer. Both women joined Steve Paulson before a live audience at the Wisconsin Book Festival to read from their work and talk about it. The writers discuss the appeal of small town life and their interest in religion and the question of how to live a good life.
