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.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Actor Paul Cram.
American Actor Narrates England Author's Sci-Fi Audio Book
Southport, England author Robert Scott-Norton wrote The Face Stealer. American actor Paul Cram narrates the 10 hour audio book version which just came out on Itunes, Audible and Amazon.
This is the first time Paul has narrated a novel of this length, and it's the author's first time having one of his books being done in this format. The book is self-published, and was produced by Paul through ACX, the audiobook creation arm of Amazon.com.
The author said, "Giving your book over to somebody else to play with is a tough moment for any writer. Paul's initial audition for my book was atmospheric and moody and had me hooked in a way I shouldn't have been as the author. He brought a new light to the work and gave me confidence."
Paul said "What first piqued my intrigue about the book was that it was being compared to Torchwood. That cool British sci-fi show. I wasn't disappointed with the comparison as The Face Stealer is brimming with covert government operations, and reluctant heroes. I really am looking forward to reading other books by Mr. Scott-Norton!"
