In her book of essays, Writing in an Age of Silence, Sara Paretsky sheds light on her popular female detective V.I. Warshawski.  She reads from this book, a finalist for the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award, and talks about her future plans for the mystery series. Paretsky also discusses Bleeding Kansas, a novel that moves away from that series set in Chicago to a story that intertwines history from her childhood stomping grounds near Lawrence, Kansas.
