Literary Treason: The Writing of Bess Streeter Aldrich

Presented by Dolores Hydock, actress, speaker and storyteller

This program looks at the life and work of Bess Streeter Aldridge, a Nebraska writer of the 1930s who accomplished what few others did: While she raised her family as a single mother, she had a successful, self-supporting career as a female writer during the first half of the 20th century. The program describes her early life and later career success, and includes a telling of “Juno’s Swans,” Aldrich’s funny, touching short story that’s a reminder that there’s no disaster like an elementary school play, and no friend as important as your best friend when you’re ten years old.

45 minutes in length.
