Award winning author Lynn Cullen is a Fort Wayne native who draws heavily on her childhood memories to spin the plot of her latest novel, The Sisters of Summit Avenue.
The tightly woven story, set in the era of the Great Depression, is driven by a host of that day's sociological issues, as well as its pop culture icon, Betty Crocker, and the impact her marketing campaign had on the nation.
Earlier this month, WBOI's Julia Meek spoke with Cullen by phone to learn what motivated this approach, and how the author regards her hometown, and those family dynamics and relationships, now that they have shaped the tale.
