Laura Hillenbrand, Author of “Unbroken” and “Seabiscuit”

laura-hillenbrand-cropToday, my guest is Laura Hillenbrand, author of the best selling books, Unbroken and Seabiscuit.  unbroken-pbUnbroken is the absolutely amazing story of Louie Zamperini, an Olympic class runner who was shot down from an airplane in World War II over the Pacific Ocean and somehow managed to survive on a life raft for 47 days — only to be captured by the Japanese and tortured as a POW for 2 years before being released.  His story — and survival — of this ordeal is an incredible story which Laura brilliantly captured in her book, and which was made into a movie with the same title by Angelina Jolie.  Louie lived long enough to read her book and died in 2014 at the age of 97.
