In this webinar Emma Copley Eisenberg discusses her acclaimed debut nonfiction book, The Third Rainbow Girl: The Long Life of a Double Murder in Appalachia, in conversation with Allison Wright. “Evocative and elegantly paced… [Eisenberg’s] unraveling of the brutal double murder is as skilled as her exploration of Pocahontas County, where the men, as much as the women, appear trapped in their predestined societal roles.” —New York Times Book Review
