The Tale of Two Christinas: Christina Baker Kline and Christina Olson

The author of the hugely popular novel “Orphan Train” has a new bestseller and this one is also set in 20th century America…however, you probably already know the main character of this book, even if you don’t recognize her full name. Christina Baker Kline’s new title, “A Piece of the World” focuses on the life of Christina Olson, the subject of Andrew Wyeth’s painting “Christina’s World.” In this conversation, we talk with Kline about her two successful novels, her writing process and the true story of Christina Olson.
