Lisa Gornick and Julie Clark on Writers on Writing, KUCI-FM

Lisa Gornick, author of The Peacock Feast, joins Marrie Stone to talk about her latest sweeping novel. She talks about the braiding together of three story-lines; researching historical figures while ensuring the research never feels didactic to the reader; managing vast amounts of time and complex story-lines, etc.

In the second half, debut novelist Julie Clark joins to talk about The Ones We Choose. She talks about writing a novel while working full-time as a teacher and raising two children on her own. She shares the contest that led her to her agent, and her path to publication. And she discusses how the explosion of reproductive technologies have led to some unintended ethical consequences.
