Leonard Todd is the author of CAROLINA CLAY, the story of the slave potter known as Dave. Newsweek calls it “a fascinating account.” Publishers Weekly describes it as “a sweeping tale of the South itself.” It was a finalist for The National Award for Arts Writing, and it won the South Carolina Center for the Book Award for Writing. It is published by W. W. Norton.
Born in South Carolina, Leonard was educated at Yale University. He is a former Fulbright Scholar to France. He lived for many years in New York City, where he began his writing career with travel articles, short stories, and novels for young adults. Two of his novels, set in areas of the South that he knew well as a boy, were optioned for film productions.
Author Leonard Todd will be talking with us about the great ceramic artisan known as “Dave,” who lived in South Carolina during the 19th century. He was a potter, a poet, and a slave.
For many years, very few details were known about this enigmatic man. Leonard, however, discovered a startling personal link to him and set out to uncover his story. The prize-winning book, CAROLINA CLAY, is the result.
Leonard now lives with his wife, a poet, in Edgefield, South Carolina, where he recently wrote the book, lyrics, and music for his first theatrical musical, SUNNY DAY, which had its premiere at the Edgefield County Theatre Company.
Leonard has told Dave’s story to audiences at the Smithsonian, at Oxford, on National Public Radio, and today he will be telling it to us.

"On The Air" With Sonny Clark
With the city of Rowlett going through this trying time, I thought I would bring on the Mayor fo Rowlett Todd Gottel.
The Mayor has been very busy and reached out to me, after I asked for time a week ago. He was still very busy, but he gave me time when he was able to give me some real time, not just a few minutes. His deadication to get information out to people and keeping them up to speed is is great! All I can say, it is obvious that he is the right leader at the right time.
We did this phone interview early in the morning on Friday. Hear what he has to say about this town and what is going on as far as relief, and city government and what is next for Rowlett during this trying time.
We will also be talking about some of the new information that has come out as of late. Working hard to keep you infomrmed.
We also take a times to take a look at the Rowlett Eagles boys basketball team.
