Author Geraldine Brooks on journalism and fiction

“The Secret Chord” is the latest novel by Geraldine Brooks. Her husband Tony Horwitz joins her tomorrow night during Aspen Words’ Winter Words series. She spoke with Aspen Public Radio Arts reporter Patrick Fort about her experience as a journalist and novelist, and being one half of a writing couple.



Patrick Fort grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, nurturing a love for ice hockey and deli sandwiches. After moving to Colorado in 2010 to attend the University of Colorado to study music, Patrick discovered his love for journalism. In 2013, Patrick created and hosted the award-winning radio program Colorado Stories, a news program that covered CU and the surrounding community. An avid mountain and road cyclist, Patrick also referees youth ice hockey. He loves '60s pop bands and and trying new recipes ranging from milk-braised carnitas to flourless cakes.
