Episode 29 - Zora Neale Hurston

Episode 29 presents a giant of the Harlem Renaissance: writer, anthropologist and zombie finder Zora Neale Hurston! Zora may be best known for her 1937 novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” but her love of adventure and willingness to re-write her own biography are sure to delight fans old and new. Writer and scholar Fatin Abbas tells Zora’s tale from the stage in ACUD, and Dead Ladies Show co-founder Katy Derbyshire joins podcast producer & presenter Susan Stone to put things in motion.
