Baking A Pie With 'Labor Day' Author Joyce Maynard

January 15, 2014

Author Joyce Maynard joined Jim Braude and Margery Eagan on Boston Public Radio to talk about her 2009 book, "Labor Day." The book has been turned into a film starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. The film comes out January 31st.

In the climactic scene of "Labor Day," characters Adele and Frank share an intimate moment together constructing a  peach pie. Pie-making has been a recurring theme in Maynard's work and her personal life. Maynard donned an apron and jumped into the WGBH kitchen to show how a good pie is made.
