Author Kim Diede ~ Historian Tom Isern ~ Faye Seidler on Transgender Health Care

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 – Kim Diede of Fargo’s first novel, Whispering Pines,? was inspired by her real-life "Aunt Mary." Great aunt Mary K. Nierling was a generous, extraordinary, slightly formidable woman who excelled in a "man's world." Kim has gone on to write three more novels in the Whispering Pines series, the latest being “Capturing Wishes,” a Christmas story. She joins us to discuss her love of writing, the publishing process, and the story of the aunt who inspired her. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay, “Black Stem Rust.” ~~~ When it comes to health concerns for transgender patients, they don't have many options. Faye Seidler is a longtime activist for transgender rights and she runs the Harbor Health Clinic in downtown Fargo. Today we revisit a conversation first aired in March, as she visits with John Harris, host of our Prairie Pulse television show.
