Podcast: Tessa Fontaine talks 'The Electric Woman' and living in Spartanburg

Wednesday, June 20

Spartanburg resident's memoir is one of the summer's hottest new reads


We've interviewed a lot of people on the City Podcast. We've had business leaders, elected officials, nonprofit luminaries, artists of all kinds, and a rotating gaggle of bureaucrats so smart they could probably divide by zero if asked. 


What we haven't had is a local author with one of the hottest books in the country...but we've fixed that. 


Today on the podcast, we're talking with author and Spartanburg resident, Tessa Fontaine about her fantastic memoir The Electric Woman (glowing New York Times review here OMG!) and about her experience finding a supportive creative community in our city.
