N.M Kelby stops by the studio to talk about her newest book, the yummy White Truffles in Winter, a novel about the great French chef Auguste Escoffier. It’s an Indie NEXT pick and BookPage’s Top Fiction Pick for November.

Also this week, we chat with Elizabeth Searle, Alan Davis and Kevin Carollo, who have all written about terrorism or tragedy and its aftermath. They recently toured to discuss the common elements in their writing.

Elizabeth Searle is the author of the novel Girl Held in Home as well as A Four-Sided Bed, which was nominated for an American Library Association Book Award.

Alan Davis is the author of the short story collection So Bravely Vegetative. He teaches in the MFA programs at Fairfield University and Minnesota State University, Moorhead. His two previous short story collections both won the MVP Competition. He has also won two Fulbrights, a Loft-McKnight Award, and a Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship.

Kevin Carollo also teaches at MSU, Moorhead. He has published poems in Conduit, Court Green, Cranky, Lungfull!, Ellipsis, and elsewhere.

Ted Wilebski joined me today to talk about the grand re-opening of the Blues Saloon on the 25th of November. Bernard Allison and his band will be there for the after Thanksgiving party and Ted stopped by to give away FIVE sets of tickets for the night.

Kinshasha talked with Dr. Matthew Edlund about his groundbreaking book The Power of Rest – Dr. Edlund takes a fresh look at the role that rest plays in the quality of our lives, offering a proven program to enhance your health, help you look younger, and feel restored.
