James McBride’s 2013 novel The Good Lord Bird is unique in its examination of Civil War history with a dark, lyrical humor that has been compared to Mark Twain. He joined us in October for a conversation with an audience at Literary Arts in downtown Portland.

On New Year’s Day, we listen back to our conversation with James McBride.
