Orphan Train & My Notorious Life

November 19, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Authors Christina Baker Kline and Kate Manning come together to talk about how the events of the 19th century inspired their respective work. Kline’s Orphan Train is the story of a child sent to the Midwest on an orphan train, but now grown up is uncovering the mystery of her past. Manning’s My Notorious Life fictionalizes the life of a midwife who became powerful, wealthy, and controversial in her practices of supporting women’s reproductive rights.
