Janet Fitch is a smart, award-winning author whose books include "White Oleander" and "Paint it Black." Both were best-sellers and have been made into movies.
Fitch’s new book, "Chimes of a Lost Cathedral", picks up the story of her historical fiction from 2017, "The Revolution of Marina M." She talks about the process of writing, the ways in which the Russian Revolution led her to see comparisons to the current political moment in the U.S. and how the two pieces of the story she has told are two parts of a whole.
Fitch will be in Sacramento this Friday, July 26, for an event with Stories on Stage Sacramento and the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley. This conversation took place earlier this month in Squaw Valley.
