Writer Anna Quindlen: Us Versus Them

Host Marcia Franklin talks with bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Anna Quindlen. The two discuss the political and cultural landscape of today, including the “Me Too” movement. The author of “How Reading Changed My Life,” Quindlen also talks about the power of reading to bridge gaps between people.

Quindlen has written 17 books of fiction and non-fiction, including “Lots of Candles,” “Plenty of Cake,” “Still Life with Bread Crumbs,” “A Short Guide to a Happy Life,” “Miller’s Valley,” and her most recent book, “Alternate Side.” A longtime reporter and columnist, Quindlen worked for the New York Times for many years. In 1992 she won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of columns she wrote for the paper, including some about the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. She was also a columnist for Newsweek.

Quindlen was in Boise as the keynote speaker for the annual Idaho Humanities Council Distinguished Lecture.
