My guest on today's show is Kristin Kuhns Alexandre, the creator of the television series Gem City based on her graphic novel Nuncio and the Gypsy Girl in the Gilded Age
She will join us to chat about that as well as her new novel Gem City Gypsy.
The period between post-adolescence and adulthood – that time known as “coming of age” – can often be painful and confusing. For Neci Stans, a 19-year-old gypsy girl in pre-World War I Dayton, Ohio, the stakes are raised as she experiences first-hand an historic tragedy at sea and deadly bigotry at home.
In Kristin Kuhns Alexandre’s new novel GEM CITY GYPSY, Neci’s harrowing journey of self-discovery includes surviving the sinking of the Lusitania, witnessing the brutal murder of her master and mentor Lord Pool and facing down the ever-menacing Ku Klux Klan.
