In her new book “Morningstar,” author Ann Hood examines the transformative power of literature. Hood recalls how a childhood of almost obsessive reading led her to dream of leaving the small New England factory town where she grew up.
As a young woman, Hood attended the University of Rhode Island and later became a best-selling author. She now splits her time between her native Rhode Island and New York.
After the release of her latest memoir, author Ann Hood sat down with Rhode Island Public Radio’s Scott MacKay to discuss her childhood in West Warwick, and how reading changed her life.
