    Faith and The Love of Literature

    in Motivation

    Join Mz. Robinson as she kicks off her first broadcast on IDDR with special guests, Sharon Lucas and Terri J. Haynes. Sharon Lucas, can’t remember a time when she wasn’t planning an event: a family reunion, birthday or retirement party, a holiday celebration or other gala,during her more than 40 years as a human resource and sales professional and more than 10 years as a book club leader. After her retirement, it seemed natural to her that she would combine those skills with her love of reading. Thus she entered the most exciting time of her life as an advocate for and planner of literary events in support of African American authors and book clubs. Terri J. Haynes, is a homeschool mom, writer, prolific knitter, freelance graphic artist and former Army wife (left the Army, not the husband). She loves to read, so much that when she was in elementary school, she masterminded a plan to be locked in a public library armed with only a flashlight to read all the books and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. As she grew, her love for writing grew as she tried her hand at poetry, articles, speeches and fiction.  Tune in and discover how "the love of literature" led these two extraordinary women to penning their first novels and starting a fabulous journey filled with Faith.

    Open Book: The Problem of Evil

    in Spirituality

    What place does an understanding of evil have in the life of a spiritual person? Does the way evil is portrayed in the media affect how we view it? Have we lost our capacity to be shocked by murder and crime because of the way evil is shown in books and movies? Most importantly, how do we restore our innocence — or is it too late? Lori and Alice take on the problem with evil, using Michael Knox Beran's book "Murder by Candlelight" as a reference and jumping-off point. With recent developments in the world like terrorism, the discussion of evil becomes more and more urgent. Don't miss this timely discussion with the hosts of your favorite on-the-air book club!

    On Why Yet's Watch with Ceet the Author and Kvn Tajzea

    in Books

    Ceet the Author hails from South Philadelphia, where he began honing his craft as an artist as early as age nine. At age fourteen he wrote a short story for his high school English class titled, Summertime in my Neighborhood. Fifteen years later that story became the basis for Ceet's first official release, 2009's The Whore and The Virgin. The book became an instant hood classic and all of the positive feedback inspired Ceet to release his second effort, A Dog's Day, that very same year.

    Ceet then began pursuing another passion of his, filmmaking and videography in 2010 by writing, producing and directing several independent film projects while releasing several more novels under the imprint of BRP Entertainment and with several projects down the line, Ceet shows no signs of slowing down...

    Kvn Tajzea (Keh-vun Tah- Jhay) is more than your typical R&B singer, songwriter and actor. Kvn began his love affair with music and acting at a very young age. "I was a very sick child growing up and nearly died a few times. I wasn'treally allowed to play outside until the age of 7 because my immune system was so weak." He read, listened to, and watched a plethora of varying artistic expression. Even after becoming healthy enough to lead the normal life of a kid his passion for the arts continued to grow and manifested itself in a variety of ways ranging from poetry, drawing, songwriting and acting. Kvn is an accomplished vocalist with a four octave range whose smooth, syrupy and comforting voice conceals an old school rasp that lets you in on the pain and tribulation that fuels a tone of hope in every note he sings. "The First Return" is Kvn's debut project featuring the production of hit maker Ron Love of MonaRK Productions.

    Join me, Why Yet, as I chat it up with both of these industrious artists. 

    See ya,

    Why Yet
