Bestselling US Author Lalita Tademy talks about her new historical novel, Citizens Creek, the third in a series that began with Cane River, Oprah’s 2001 Summer Book Club selection, and the critically acclaimed Red River. Tademy is a two-time New York Times bestselling author.

Tademy was born in Berkeley, California, far from her parents’ southern roots. Both her mother and father made sure their household maintained a definite non-California edge, which included a steady supply of dishes from the south of the USA, and a stream of transplanted southerners eager to share their ‘back-home’ stories. Versions of those tales seem to steal their way into whatever she writes.  Before turning to writing, Tademy enjoyed a highly successful business career as vice-president and general manager of several high-tech companies in Silicon Valley. In 1998, she was named an African-American Innovator in the New Millennium at the Silicon Valley Tech Museum of Innovation.

Tademy talks to Malaika Adero, former vice-president and senior editor at Atria Books/Simon and Schuster.
