Produced by Carl Hersh and Kathy Hersh, this 48-minute video presents the prolific and generous author James Michener (1907-1997) discussing the craft of writing as he sees it. Originally an educator, Michener came to fiction writing relatively late; he didn't write Tales From the South Pacific (1947) until he was 40. That book won the Pulitzer Prize and was turned into the hit Broadway musical +South Pacific, which left him financially able to pursue writing full time.
