During the Cold War, the book “Dr. Zhivago” by Boris Pasternak was banned by the Russians and coveted by the CIA.

In her debut novel, "The Secrets We Kept," author Lara Prescott expands on the story of “Dr. Zhivago” and highlights the overlooked women who helped get Pasternak’s story out.

Prescott joined Kerri Miller on Tuesday for a conversation about her book and how what we read changes us.
