For this Open Book. my guest is New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today bestselling author of historical women’s fiction, Stephanie Dray. Her award-winning work has been translated into many languages and tops lists for the most anticipated reads of the year. Her most recent book is a novel based on the life of Frances Perkins. Frances Perkins is best remembered, if at all, as one of the architects of the Social Security Act. But during the nearly two decades when she was in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s cabinet first when he was Governor of New York and then during the four terms in which he was President, she worked tirelessly for justice for the working poor.
