- Program Description
Ten years after her Pulitzer Prize winning novel “The Color Purple” became a major motion picture, Alice Walker has written about the tribulations and wisdom of the experience in her memoir “The Same River Twice: Honoring the Difficult.” In a candid interview, Walker shares these challenges with guest interviewer Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, sociologist, author, and professor of education at Harvard University. The years-old friends share the pain and joy of mothers and daughters, lovers and betrayal, politics and creativity, spirituality and nature.
