Book Nook: Caleb's Crossing, by Geraldine Brooks

Geraldine Brooks has made a seemingly seamless transition from her previous career as a foreign correspondent to her present occupation of novelist.

Brooks visited the Book Nook in early September, 2001 to talk about her first historical novel "Year of Wonders." She returns to discuss her latest effort, "Caleb's Crossing." This book is based on the true story of a Wampanoag Indian who graduated from Harvard College during the 17th century.

Live on Kaleidoscope: Kris N

The cover art for Kris N's Heartscarf
Cherry Fullam

Much like this previous release, Lo-fi Movement, Kris N's new album was recorded at home.  Prior to recording the songs that would become Heartscarf, he recorded two other albums worth of material but decided that the current songs were the right ones to release. 

Kris N returned to the WYSO studios to perform tracks from Heartscarf live and spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about recording in the moment and the idea of the heart scarf, which was conceptualized with visual artist Cherry Fullam.  Heartscarf will be released on June 24th via Poptek Records.
