    Literary Diva Presents: Author Barbara Shoup!

    in Books

    Join us as we welcome author "Barbara Shoup."


     


    Barbara is a very talented author who has released her eighth novel, titled "Looking For Jack Kerouac."


     


    The novel has an interesting backstory: 


     In “Looking for Jack Kerouac,” Paul Carpetti picks up a copy of “On the Road” by legendary beat novelist Jack Kerouac during a class trip in New York City. The book has a dramatic impact on Paul, changing his whole outlook on life. But when he returns home from the city, his world crumbles. It’s 1964, and Paul is dealing with the death of his mother. He needs to get away.


     


    Paul hops in a car with his friend, Duke, and doesn’t look back. The two land in Florida where Paul finds Kerouac, who turns out to be nothing like the author he idolized. But, in the end, the writer helps Paul in his journey to self-discovery in an unexpected way.


     


    B. Shoup is the author seven other novels, including a School Library Journal Best Adult Book for Young Adults, “Vermeer’s Daughter,” and two others – “Wish You Were Here” and “Stranded in Harmony” – selected as American Library Association Best Books for Young Adults.


    She is the executive director of the Indiana Writers Center and the co-author of “Novel Ideas: Contemporary Authors Share the Creative Process” (2000) and “Story Matters: Contemporary Short Story Writers Share the Creative Process (2006).”


     


    Tune in as we dive into the novel "Looking For Jack Kerouac" by author Barbara Shoup.


     


    Stay tuned and keep it locked.

    Friday FARcast: On The Road With Richard Grossinger

    in Paranormal

    On today's show, I'm joined by my good friend, author, publisher, thinker, Richard Grossinger.  Richard has written epic bi-opics like "Out Of Babylon," and "New Moon" as well as a number of books on plant medicine and homeopathy.  He's one of the great, observational minds of our time and his ability to synthesize wide and often abstract perspectives, often in a stunning use of the English, language.


    Richard is currently en-route to Maine leaving California after many years.  We'll be getting some of his unique observations and perspectives from the road.


    In hour number two, I'll be dissecting the current crisis going down at America's borders, specifically, here in Texas, ground zero of the southern, human surge.


    Please join me.
