1: Pandemic

Cat SearsIn this, our first episode, Tom talks with fiction writer Cat Ennis Sears about a trio of stories set during the 1918 flu pandemic.

Cat’s stories, enriched by her careful research, present three lives changed forever by the deadly virus:  a soldier in South Carolina, an Irish immigrant working as a street conductor, and a bereaved housewife forced to leave her cabin on the Manitoba prairie to seek work as a “mill girl.”
