The youngest of twelve children, and raised by her widowed mother, Sarah Broom grew up in the challenging neighbourhood of New Orleans East. She writes about her upbringing, her home and the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina on her community.
There’s the place you call home: the physical four walls, the back porch, the garden … and then there’s the metaphor of home: the hearth and heart of your identity. Sarah M. Broom joined host Krys Boyd in August to talk about the New Orleans home where she and her siblings grew up, and the emotional toll of being displaced from the world she loved. She writes about her experiences in her memoir, “The Yellow House,” which went on to win a National Book Award.
