in conversation with Peter Robinson
Karen Kondazian talks about her novel The Whip ($15.00). This work is inspired by the true story of Charlotte “Charley” Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her life as a man. As a young woman in Rhode Island, her husband was lynched and her baby killed. Dressed as a man, she went to California to track down the murderer. Peter Robinson is the head of the San Francisco Literary Society.
