Migrant MotherThis photo, "Migrant Mother," is one of the most famous Depression-Era photographs.  "Dorothea Lange" Grab a Hunk of Lightning," by Elizabeth Partridge, tells the story behind this and many other famous and lesser known works by Dorthea Lange.  Perhaps most fascinating of all is the story of how Lange became a photographer.  Join us this week on Writers' Voices, as Partidge, Lange's goddaughter, talks about producing this companion book to the PBS American Masters episode on Lange which will air in 2014.  

Partridge was an acupuncturist for 20 years before she closed her practice to focus on writing.  She has written over a dozen books and is on the core faculty of Vermont College of Fine Arts, MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
