In The Author's Voice: Lady Lucy's Quest

book cover for Lady Lucy's Quest
Shires Press

A new children’s book, Lady Lucy’s Quest,  tells the story of a feisty young heroine who believes in the power of the possible. 

"In her dreams, she slew dangerous dragons; she fought fierce battles; she saved starving lions."

It’s written by Karen Gross who is a former college president and former senior policy advisory at the US Department of Education. 

WSIU Radio's Jeff Williams recently talked with Gross about the book and what inspired her to write a story for children.

In The Author's Voice is a web-based series of WSIU Radio.

Jeff Williams is the Associate Director for Radio and Station Manager for WSIU Radio. Jeff is a native of southern Illinois and has been in broadcasting for 30 years. Contact WSIU Radio at 618-453-6101 or email wsiuradio@wsiu.org
