Geraldine Brooks on her new novel "Caleb's Crossing"

Host Marianne Barisonek interviews Geraldine Brooks, best-selling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize (for March) about her new book, CALEB’S CROSSING, which was inspired by the life of Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk, the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Brooks first learned about him during her time as a Radcliffe fellow at Harvard in 2006. Caleb was from the Wampanoag tribe of Native Americans who lived on Martha’s Vineyard. There is little official information on Caleb’s life and Brooks’s novel is an informed imagining of what he might have gone through.
