Bookish is dedicated to giving readers the best content around; that’s why we’re partnering with BookTrib to bring you this podcast interview:
Kathleen Hill, author of the recently published memoir She Read to Us in the Late Afternoons: A Life in Novels, talks to Writer’s Bone host Daniel Ford about how the stories she heard in her youth led to her becoming a writer and why she decided to write a memoir.
Kathleen Hill has been teaching others her whole life. In her twenties, she and her husband Clifford Hill taught in a secondary school close to Nigeria and she went on to receive a doctorate in English literature. Today, she writes stories, such as Still Waters in Niger, which she found inspiration for when she visited her daughter in Niger after joining the Peace Corps. Kathleen has lived in New York City most of her life, writing and constantly learning.
