The Family Of Survivors On 'Molokai'

Cover: Molokai
Cover: Molokai
A story of heartbreak and survival in the leper colony of Molokai.
GUEST: Alan Brennert, author Molokai

One Book, One San Diego, the KPBS/San Diego library program that encourages people all over the county to read and discuss a book together, expanded itself in 2012. Instead of one book, there were three books chosen for the community to experience this year.

We've already had the pleasure of speaking with the authors of "Sky of Red Poppies" and "Into the Beautiful North." Now we hear from the author of the third book selected, a tragic but ultimately inspiring novel called "Molokai."
