Vermont author Elizabeth Wilcox joins The Tiny Table to talk about her new book The Long Tail of Trauma: A Memoir and what it was like to publish something so personal and yet extremely relevant to current events. We often hear that “history repeats itself” and Elizabeth Wilcox’s journey into her family’s history (through WWI and WWII to present day) is incredibly moving and thought provoking.
