We speak with bestselling author CJ Box about his new Joe Pickett novel Breaking Point. He has won the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, Gumshoe and Barry Awards, as well as the French Prix Calibre .38.

We also speak with award-winning theater artist Virginia Grise about her work. Her play Blu won the Yale Drama Series Award and a Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Award, as well as an Alliance Theatre’s Kendeda Award. And she also co-wrote The Panza Monologues.

2 interviews today…one with Rochester Minnesota blues diva Annie Mack…..who stopped by the show to talk about her newest CD project due out in May 2013.

You And Your Anxious Child

One of the world’s foremost experts on anxiety in children provides a guide to recognizing and alleviating a range of debilitating fears.

Anxiety affects more children and teens than any other psychiatric illness, but it’s also the most treatable emotional disorder. Some 25 percent of children and adolescents will suffer an anxiety disorder at several points in their lifetime, resulting in serious problems in their ability to function in school, with peers, and on a general day-to-day basis. A renowned researcher and clinician who has developed groundbreaking, proven coping strategies illuminates a new path to fear-free living for families.

You and Your Anxious Child differentiates between separation anxiety, generalized anxiety, and social phobia, and guides parents on when and how to seek intervention. With moving case studies, such as Jon’s, whose mother quit her job because his separation anxiety compelled her to stay with him full-time, this book elucidates the nightmare that families can be living, and helps them understand that they are not alone. Every step of the way, Albano illustrates proven therapies to manage anxiety issues in children while addressing the emotional needs of parents, too. You and Your Anxious Child brings much-needed hope to families, helping them shape a positive new vision of the future.
