An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Longtime journalist Ilyon Woo is also the bestselling author of The Great Divorce: A Nineteenth-Century Mother’s Extraordinary Fight Against Her Husband, the Shakers, and Her Times and now Master Slave Husband Wife: An Epic Journey from Slavery to Freedom. Kirkus calls the latter “a gripping adventure…suspenseful and wonderfully told. A captivating tale that ably captures the determination and courage of a remarkable couple.” Woo discussed Master Slave Husband Wife with fellow BIO member Kitty Kelley earlier this month.
