Kate Sullivan interviews Geraldine Brooks, winner of a Pulitzer Prize award for fiction. Brooks, a native-born Australian, won the Pulitzer for her novel, MARCH, which won widespread acclaim.
In this segment of About the Books, Kate talks with Geraldine Brooks about her novel, CALEB'S CROSSING, released this month from The Viking Press, an imprint of PenguinUSA.
Brooks develops one of the characters, Caleb, based on a true story of a young man from Martha's Vineyard, who became the first Native American graduate of Harvard College, known in 1661 as the College of Newtowne.
