This episode of Big Blend Radio’s “Author’s Sunday” Show with Books Forward features author and writer Lori McMullen who discusses her new novel, “Among the Beautiful Beasts.” Set in 1920s Miami, the book reveals the remarkable untold story of Marjory Stoneman Douglas – the woman who saved the Everglades. During a time when women were highly undervalued and opportunities were gravely limited, Marjory saw something of her own life reflected in the environmental decline that took place around her. After running away from her husband – a swindler thirty years her senior – and entering into an all-consuming affair, Marjory finds herself drained by the demanding men seeking control over her life. She finds solace in the natural world – wild and free as she longs to be. She must soon decide between comfort and safety, and a leap into the unknown. More:
