Description
Kate Wenner discusses her book, “Dancing with Einstein.” She begins the interview by explaining how she grew up during the Cold War era and wanted to write a book that focused on children growing up during disasters. She talks about the plot and introduces her main character’s family and their connection to scientist Albert Einstein. Wenner then discusses the growth of her character and how she resolves her initial fears of an atom bomb. Wenner talks about her personal background as a television producer for the ABC Network, then her transition into autobiographical and fiction writing. Martinson ends the interview by asking Wenner to read a passage from her book.
