In Isabel Allende's new novel "Maya's Notebook," the 19-year-old protagonist journals about her happy childhood in Berkeley -- and her later escapades involving drugs, sex and crime in Las Vegas, as she hides out from her pursuers on an island off the coast of Chile. Allende joins us to talk about the book, and about how she weaves her passion for her home country into her writing. Allende recently won the Carl Sandburg Literary Award, given to authors who have made significant contributions to the written word.

Host: Michael Krasny
