Liz Moore, LONG BRIGHT RIVER
Jun 15th, 2020 by zibbyowens
I had the chance to interview Liz Moore over Zoom and Instagram Live to discuss Long Bright River, which is Liz's best-selling novel and a GMA Book Club pick. It's the story of two sisters who grow up adjacent to Kensington in Philadelphia which is a neighborhood that's been particularly hard hit by the opioid crisis. As adults, they become estranged: the older sister is a police officer and the younger sister is suffering from opioid addiction. Liz and I talked about how her book was inspired by her own family history, genetic predisposition, and systemic failures in our country that have contributed to the insidiousness of addiction.
