The Pen and The Sword: Kate Manning

Gilded Mountain is a work of historical fiction which follows the story of a young woman, Sylvie Pelletier, coming of age and finding her voice in the small mining town of Moonstone Colorado in the early 1900's.

Kate Manning shares how Marble and Redstone inspired the setting of her new novel; the importance of women's stories in history; and what can be learned about the future when we turn to the past and relive it in a joyful and adventurous way.

The first time Taya was on the radio was a KVNF pledge drive promo recorded in 1998, she was 5. It went something like this, “I like KVNF because it’s fun to listen to music” she goes on to say, “music is like a dream”.
