Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks regularly tops the bestseller lists, both in her native Australia and around the world. We last heard from her in 2008, with People of the Book. Now, she's back, this time making a splash with Caleb's Crossing, the remarkable story of a young man who became the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College in 1665.
Brooks was in Toronto during Luminato, a week-long annual festival celebrating arts and culture. She was joined onstage at the Toronto Public Library by The Sunday Edition host Michael Enright. The two talked about what is was like to dive into history and emerge with a fascinating new story.
