Author Siri Hustvedt joins us at 11 a.m. for a live chat after her appearance on MPR's Midmorning today April 24th. From the show description:

Siri Hustvedt talks about her new novel, The Sorrows of an American: A Novel. The American in the title is ostensibly her father, a Minnesotan who served in World War II and wrote a memoir. Passages of the memoir are in the book, but Hustvedt imagines a story in which a father leaves a diary to his children which contains a secret. The novel is about the unreliability of memory and the ways in which secrets affect our lives.

She'll chat with us from 11:00 - 11:30a CT Post your questions in the online discussion and we'll tackle them in order.
