Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Lorena Bathey joins me to talk about her books. We'll start with the forthcoming Meeting Ms. Monroe and then talk about her other books as well.
Mary Monroe has dyed black hair, pale face, and Goth makeup. She works at a trendy restaurant, but is not enamored of the celebrity lifestyle. Soon after her 25th birthday Mary meets with her mother’s lawyer and is shocked to learn she's been left millions. As she leaves his office he hands her a letter from her mother and a key to a secret storage space. When she opens the storage space she finds furniture, suitcases, and dresses all belonging to the legendary Marilyn Monroe.
Buying a new home with her new found wealth she furnishes it with the items from the storage space. But what happens next is nothing short of a miracle - or a nightmare. Mary finds herself blacking out and when she awakes she has a new hairstyle, clothes, and most intriguing and frightening of all...letters written to her by Marilyn Monroe. Plunged into a world she doesn’t remember, Mary tries to keep her sanity as she appears to be living the double life of a legend.
Follow Mary Monroe as she moves back and forth in time not sure she if she will lose herself or find another.
For more about Lorena Bathey and her books:
What would it take to get the people to stop following others? How can we expect our children to be leaders when we tecah them to follow? Do you want a child capable of memorizing random facts out-of-context or a child who self-leads?
What is the role of education to society? Is it to protect the children and the future? Are we doing so with the public education system? Do we have teachers following administrators and children following books that offer little self-leadership skills?
This subject may get lively so be sure to take the microphone!
Tonight's show discusses books and essays that invite readers to share their kind voices. We will talk about Travels with Charlie by John Steinbeck, Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde and the essay Be Cool to the Pizza Dude, by Sarah Adams Nowlin. Then we will dive into the details on how these types of stories are created.

Fallen Acres: A Girl's Voyage Beyond Life Without Her Parents ~
When You Face Your Greatest Fears, You Find Your Truest Self... The Elliotts are a typical American family: they look content and functional to outsiders, but really, they’re navigating difficult family dynamics. Two introverted parents with passionate feelings who have learned to master and subvert their anger find themselves confronted by a drama-fueled oldest daughter, and a self-absorbed middle daughter. The author, their youngest daughter, tries as hard as she can to be the perfect child—she doesn’t cause trouble, she stays away from angry scenes. But the repression that makes her passive and avoidant causes her reckless nature to come out in other ways…in a series of bad decisions that lead her, at the age of 40, to a place where she is determined to do the right thing for her parents during their late-life crisis. Her story is one of heartache, loss, lessons learned, truths uncovered. It’s about the ways in which God and fate intervene to show us what we’re made of. It’s a powerful testament to the need for compassion and realism with aging parents and end-of-life issues. But most of all, it’s a story of identity and redemption—and how one girl ran away from her hurtful family issues only to find that immersing herself back into her family’s world was the way to claim who she really was. Lyrical, honest, and vivid, Fallen Acres is a memoir both deeply relatable and profoundly valuable.
Jessica Kenley was born in 1981 in Buffalo, NY. She lost two of her children, Ethan Tyler and Kaylee Marie, to the Junctional-Herlitz subtype of Epidermolysis Bullosa during their infancy. She is a licensed veterinary technician and has since had 3 healthy children. She wrote the book "Kidowed" to describe the struggles, sorrows, and triumphs of her first two children's painful and short lives. In her second book, "Walking the Mile", she attempts to resume her life with a new husband, a new town, and a new baby. She describes her journey through the struggles with undiagnosed and stigmatized mental and physical illness, resulting in addiction, alcoholism, and the abandonment of her family and society as a whole. And finally--the light at the end of the tunnel.

Have you ever done your children's homework for them? Have you driven to school to drop off an assignment that they forgot? Have you done a college student's laundry? What about coming along to Junior's first job interview?
These examples are drawn from two new books — How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims and The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey. Both are by women writing from their experience as parents and as educators. Lahey is a middle school teacher and a writer for The New York Times and The Atlantic; Lythcott-Haims was the longtime freshman dean at Stanford.
The books make strikingly similar claims about today's youth and their parents: Parents are "too worried about [their children's] future achievements to allow [them] to work through the obstacles in their path"
