Write On! Radio

Tuesday, April 22nd, on Write On! Radio, we speak with Kenneth C. Davis about his new book Don't Know Much About the American Presidents. He is the author of the phenomenal bestseller Don't Know Much About History, as well as A Nation Rising and America's Hidden History.

We also talk with Rene Denfeld about her amazing debut novel The Enchanted. She is an author, journalist and death penalty investigator who has written All God's Children, Kill the Body, the Head Will Fall, and The New Victorians, which was an international bestseller.
