01 Jul Looking for Hope in History–with Susie Finkbeiner
Today I’m sharing my chat with Susie Finkbeiner. Her latest book, The Nature of Small Birds, releases July 6. This book centers around Operation Babylift, which was the name given to the mass evacuation of children from South Vietnam to the United States and other countries at the end of the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War. Susie and I talk about the way she structured this unique novel, why she enjoys writing about more recent history, and the theme of hope in her novels. In her words, “Sometimes we have to look backwards in order to realize how important it is to grasp onto hope.”
