About this episode
The Pulitzer Prize is one of the most prestigious awards in the country for writers... and last year's winners were just announced this week. So today, we're looking back at two nonfiction authors whose books won the accolade. First, journalist Andrea Elliot speaks to Jane Clyson on Here and Now about her book Invisible Child, the story of how a young child's life was directed by homelessness. Then, Tufts University professor Erin Kelly speaks to Debbie Elliott about the autobiography she helped the late artist Winfred Rembert write – a story about civil rights, injustice, and coping through art.
