Issues and Ideas: Coming of age in "This I Know"
The human struggle--especially for young girls--to fit in and to embrace one's unique gifts is very real. Local author Eldonna Edwards explores this struggle in her new book, This I Know. Issues and Ideas host Brian Reynolds talks with Eldonna Edwards this month about her novel that is garnering a buzz in the literary world, including a June book club selection by syndicated radio host Delilah. Set in a small Midwest town in the late 1960s and helmed by an unforgettable young protagonist, This I Know is a luminous coming-of-age story from an astonishing new voice.
