Host Doug Storm introduces the three-part series Taking the Measure of Raintree County.

Perhaps it needn’t be said that Raintree County is novel with a history.  We take a first step tonight into the geography of the novel with the aid of three guests who will provide a kind of compass rose to help locate us in the mythical world of Ross Lockridge, Jr.

Guests:
Don Gray, emeritus professor of English literature at Indiana University; Eric Sandweiss, Carmony Chair, Department of History and Editor of Indiana Magazine of History; and Cherry Williams, Curator of Manuscripts at The Lilly Library at Indiana University.
