Author Sarah Shun-lien Bynum

AIR DATE: February 24, 2012

Sarah Shun-lien Bynum writes stories that border on the supernatural.  Her novel, Madeline is Sleeping, focused on a little girl shifting between the dream world and reality.  But her latest book deals very much with the real world: Ms. Hempel Chronicles is seen through the eyes of a teacher who is hopeful for her students, but disillusioned with her own life.  Author Sarah Shun-lien Bynum talks to us about the joy of childhood, and what we lose in the shift to adulthood. 
She speaks Feb. 22 at UNLV's Black Mountain Institute on "Female Novelists in the 21st Century: Not Your Grandmother’s Sense and Sensibility" at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Student Union Ballroom.
