Interviews with Geraldine Brooks and Farmers

Volume VII, Issue 1

Authored by Dr. Anna Faktorovich
Contributions by Geraldine Brooks
Edition: 1

This issue begins with an interview with the Pulitzer Prize winning author, Geraldine Brooks, who talks about the writing craft, her novels and her life outside of fiction. This feature is followed by four interviews with farmers from the Frankfort, Kentucky region, one of whom, Michael Spencer, is on the Kentucky state Farm Bureau board and another, Richard Jones, runs the regionally well-known Happy Jack's Pumpkin Farm. The critical essays include one from the editor, Anna Faktorovich, on the Kentucky farm cabin myth, which is best-recognized as the Lincoln cabin myth. She developed this essay as part of her research in the Kentucky Historical Society's Special Collections, where she did a three-week fellowship this April 2015. There are also essays, short stories and poetry from Bert Cardullo (established film critic and professor), Michael O'Connor (a successful script writer), Louis Gallo (editor and professor), Jim Davis (Harvard master's candidate), A. Joachim Glage (attorney and Hollywood writer), Scott Gordon (fiction writer and independent filmmaker), Janet Ruth Heller (president of the Michigan College English Association), and Keith Moser (professor, editor and author of multiple titles).
