Matt Raymond from the Library of Congress speaks with Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor, who will appear at the 2009 National Book Festival in the History & Biography pavilion on September 26, 2009, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Sue Monk Kidd is the author of the widely acclaimed nonfiction books “The Dance of the Dissident Daughter” (1996) and “When the Heart Waits” (1990). Her first published novel, the best-seller “The Secret Life of Bees” (2002), has sold more than 5 million copies, spent more than two years on the New York Times best-seller list and was made into a motion picture. She has recently collaborated with her daughter, Ann Kidd Taylor, on “Traveling with Pomegranates: A Mother-Daughter Story” (2009).
Ann Kidd Taylor has co-written with her mother “a spiritual memoir” about a series of pilgrimages the two made together through Greece, France, Turkey and Switzerland beginning the summer that Ann graduated from college in 1998 and her mother turned 50.
