Monday April 3, 2017: Author Lucy Jane Bledsoe

Lucy Jane Bledsoe, author of the novel, A Thin Bright Line. Based on the (partially imagined) life of her aunt, Lucybelle Bledsoe, the novel weaves McCarthyism, climate change, civil rights and pre-Stonewall gay life into a rich tapestry.

The New York Times calls it "an intimate and humane evocation of day-to-day life under inhumane circumstances.” A Thin Bright Line is a political and authentic historical novel of lesbian lives in the 1950's and 1960's. Lucy Jane writes about how we love.
