Sheila Banks, author, discusses her new book, Bittersweet

August 13, 2013 by Nancy Kranzberg

St. Louisan Sheila Banks talks about her new book, Bittersweet, a work of historical fiction based on enthralling stories told by the author's own family members. A powerful period tableau which holds a mirror up to America's face, the themes of Bittersweet reflect many of the same images of racism and colorism in 21st Century America that were seen when the story opens nearly 100 years ago in Louisiana.
