Remembering Feminist Writer Tillie Olsen

Credit University of Nebraska Press

Kathie Olsen, daughter of Tillie Olsen, talks about her mother's life and work.

Tillie Olsen is no longer with us, but her work remains fresh and alive.

The writer of short fiction and non-fiction works is described by some people as a feminist author, but that's an oversimplification.  Her work reflects a deep understanding of women and poor people, still relevant today.  Her daughter Kathie Olsen will join us to talk about the recent collection Tell Me a Riddle, Requa I, and Other Works.
