Tonight’s guest is Susi Forsans, executive director of the French-American Chamber of Commerce of Minneapolis and St. Paul. She will speak of this important international organization and of their various activities. As with all of our guests, Susi will bring some of her favorite French songs.

We speak with Jim Robbins about his fascinating new book The Man Who Planted Trees, which tells the story of David Milarch, who has undertaken preserving the world’s biggest and oldest trees. This book provides so much vital information about the importance of trees and how little we know about them. Jim has also written for Smithsonian, Vanity Fair, Scientific American, The New York Times Magazine and many other publications.

In the second half of the show, we speak with Tim Brady about his new book Twelve Desperate Miles, which tells the story of a rusty old banana boat from New Orleans and its crew, drafted into service prior to General Patton’s invasion of Northwestern Africa. The Wall Street Journal, Kirkus Reviews and Booklist all gave it high praise.
