11/25/2013 TruthToTell- Former MN Legistlator Kathy Vellenga talks about new novel, "Strangers in Our Midst"


This Monday, TruthToTell’s Andy Driscoll and special guest co-host Tom O’Connell with sit down with former Minnesota legislator Kathy Vellenga (DFL- 64A, St. Paul) to talk about her new historical novel, Strangers in Our Midst.  The story is about two young girls in mid-seventeenth century North America who become unlikely friends. One is an Anglo who came over on the Mayflower, the other, a young girl in the east coast Wampanoag tribe. Forty Press describes the tale as, “a critical moment in our continent's history, remaining faithful to the historical record while avoiding both stereotypes and finger-pointing. It describes a time when love, trust, and understanding struggled to overcome cruelty, hardship, and deception in all societies-and it does so with great imagination.”
