New York Times Bestselling author Meg Wolitzer reads from her most recent novel, The Female Persuasion, and discusses its themes of feminism and the tendency to idealize our mentors. Her work has long centered on the experiences of women, with three of her books having been adapted for film, including The Wife. Wolitzer reflects on her career, and her mother--novelist and poet Hilma Wolitzer, in a conversation with KCUR's Anne Kniggendorf.
