Caitlin Shetterly Goes West, Goes Broke, Finds Home
At the height of the recession in 2009, NPR contributor Caitlin Shetterly produced a series of emotional radio diaries documenting the financial devastation her family faced in Los Angeles after deciding to pack up and leave their home state of Maine.
Now, she’s turned those diaries, and the story of how they rebuilt their lives, into a new book, “Made for You and Me: Going West, Going Broke, Finding Home.”
