Jennifer Bort Yacovissi joins Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, to discuss her debut historical novel 'Up The Hill to Home,' that is based on her ancestors. 'Up the Hill to Home' sketches an enduring portrait of four generations of the Miller/Beck/Voith clan against the backdrop of Washington, D.C., as the city itself grows from a dusty pre-Civil War cowtown to a national capital in the throes of the Great Depression.
Jenny Yacovissi grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, just a bit farther up the hill from Washington, D.C. In addition to writing historical and contemporary literary fiction, Jenny is a reviewer for Washington Independent Review of Books and Historical Novel Society.
This interview originally aired on May 3, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Champagne Sundays variety show, that streamed live online from the historic Coronado Motor Hotel in Yuma, Arizona.
