Host John Pearce sits down with Dr. Rebecca Price Janney, a prolific novelist who creates stories based on history. She shares her fourth book in her Easton series, Easton at the Crossroads, which tells parallel stories of Northampton County during the time of the U.S. Revolutionary War and a present-day history professor.
Dr. Janney also explains the role of the Lehigh Valley flying camps in the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776 and how she weaves fictitious characters into historical facts.
Tune in to Lehigh Valley Discourse Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 PM following All Things Considered.
