In conversation with Lorene Cary, author of the memoirs Ladysitting  and Black Ice, three novels, and a book for young readers. She teaches at University of Pennsylvania and has written a one-act opera of Ladysitting and a play, My General Tubman.

After a 20-year career as a journalist, working at the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Tribune, and then as a corporate executive, Carole Hopson followed her dream to become a pilot. Based in Newark, NJ, Hopson currently flies the Boeing 737 for United Airlines as a first officer. Her debut fiction, A Pair of Wings: A Novel Inspired by Pioneer Aviatrix Bessie Coleman, an Oprah Daily best pick for July 2021, is about the exciting life of Queen Bess.
