Author James McBride on Song Yet Sung

Author James McBride (The Color of Water, Miracle at St. Anna) sat down with Marc to discuss his new novel, Song Yet Sung.  Set on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and following a fugitive slave with visions of the future, a waterman and slave catcher, a mysterious hermit, a murderous slave stealer, and many others, the book examines the complicated relationships forged by the slave trade.

Song Yet Sung is this year’s “One Maryland, One Book,” sponsored by the Maryland Humanities Council.  You can see James McBride speak at the Baltimore Book Festival at noon on Sunday, September 27th, or during a week long tour of the state in October.
