Karen Cushman

Sunday, May 18th 3:00pm

Her other books include "Will Sparrow’s Road," "The Midwife’s Apprentice," and "The Ballad of Lucy Whipple." She especially likes writing about gutsy girls in various historical eras who are figuring out who they are.

The final volume is a literary triumph worthy of the military triumph it explores.
