Bestselling author of the National Book Award winning The Round House and the Pulitzer Prize nominee The Plague of Doves Louise Erdich visits Well Read to discuss her literary masterwork, LaRose.

In his latest book, Richard Russo returns to North Bath, in upstate New York, and the characters who made Nobody's Fool (1993) a must read. His newest book, Everybody's FooI, is filled with humor, heart, hard times and people you can't help but love, possibly because their various faults make them so stridently human.
