In it, she compiles both the man-made and natural disasters that shocked the North Country in the hundred years between 1850 and 1950.
Listen in as Farnsworth talks about topics such as: Why is she drawn to dark topics? What did she learn about life a hundred years ago? What is her process of writing?
