A Middle East nation divided after a war. Western leaders arguing over the problems of the Sunni-Shia split and the future the kurds. Sound familiar? It's Mesopatamia, right after World War 1. It's also the backdrop of Mary Doria Russell's new book, Dreamers of the Day. The Cleveland author and erstwhile paleoanthropologist joins us for a conversation about fiction and history's tendency to repeat itself. Join us Monday morning at 9 for conversation and a chance to get your own signed copy of the new novel.
