We've started a segment on The Daily Circuit called Roaming and Reading. It's a mash-up of two things Kerri loves: literature and travel.
In this installment, we travel to Florida to explore Tampa through Dennis Lehane's "Live by Night."
Our "guide" novelist is Diana Abu-Jaber. Kerri loved her novel, "Birds of Paradise."
"You embrace such a strong sense of place in your writing," Kerri said.
Abu-Jaber discusses how she integrates Florida's atmosphere, smells and sounds into her fiction work.
