Celebrating Women’s History Month with Authors Deborah Johnson & Sujata Massey

International Women's History Month Literary FestivalMarch 6, 2014 – Segment 3

March is Women’s History Month, and in celebration of women writers, I talk with Deborah Johnson and Sujata Massey, the authors of two fascinating new historical novels. Johnson’s book, The Secret of Magic, tells the story of a young black female attorney working with Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in the late 1940s, who travels to Mississippi to investigate the murder of an African American war hero. Massey’s book, The Sleeping Dictionary, is an historical romance set during India’s struggle for independence.

Johnson and Massey will be speaking this Saturday at 1:00 PM at the Enoch Pratt Free Library as part of the International Women’s History Month Literary Festival.
