  Her latest novel, Flight Behavior, takes place within a small Tennessee community that finds itself at the center of the debate over global climate change. In part two of our conversation, Kingsolver talks about her Kentucky roots and how the commonwealth has influenced her work that is renowned, not only in this region, but across the nation and worldwide.
