Writers on a New England Stage: Richard Russo

Richard Russo won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for his novel Empire Falls, which the Christian Science Monitor described as "[possibly] the last great novel of the 20th Century." Russo was on hand at The Music Hall in Portsmouth to talk about his new novel, Bridge of Sighs, for the latest installment of Writers on a New England Stage. The series brings award-winning, nationally-recognized authors to the Music Hall stage to talk about their works with NHPR's Laura Knoy, and also features music by award-winning rock trio Dreadnaught.
