    in Writing

    Join host Tom Riddell and co-host Teri Brown as they welcome author Nancy McLaughlin to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Nancy discusses what it's like to be a writer and she will also talk to us about her book: American Nomads
    They are nomads, a roaming group of young adults, inspired by living life without jobs and the absence of four walls of a house to constrain them. They travel by hopping trains and they sustain themselves by stealing and socializing with other bands of traveling vagabonds who have also chosen a life of limitless freedom and adventure. Beth, a typical teenager, in a middleclass town, meets up with River, a drifter in a small group of traveling misfits and a bond is formed. River is beautiful, outgoing and confident; all of the things that Beth aspires to be. River soon introduces Beth to her traveling family of friends: Zac the protector, Cash the likable con man, Finn the feral and mistrusting one and Teague, thoughtful and calm with a funny Cajun accent, a partner to Finn, he tries his best to keep Finn in check and to bring out the best in him. Beth is excited to hear the stories they tell her and when they offer for her to join them, she doesn't hesitate. She learns the fun and dangers of hopping a train, camps out under the stars and soon she is sharing her nomad experiences with her online friends and immediately her posts go viral. But not all is fun and wonderful. When behaviors of a few of her companions turn to a dark and disturbing side, she wonders if she made a horrible mistake. What will Beth do? With her safety at stake will she continue to follow along with these people or will she go back to her old life?

    From a family of two tales, Brooks Eason talks about his father's double life

    in Books

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR
    Brooks Eason was born in New Orleans in 1957 and given up for adoption by his teenage mother, who was wealthy but unwed. He was adopted and raised by wonderful parents in Tupelo, Mississippi, and has practiced law in Jackson, Mississippi, for more than 35 years. He is the author of three books.
    ABOUT THE BOOK - REDEMPTION: The Two Lives of Harry Brooks
    In the first half of Harry’s life, he embezzled money from the Uniontown, PA, school district where he was the elected superintendent, left his wife for another woman, and sought to escape by booking passage on a Cunard liner to Liverpool. But his plan was foiled, Scotland Yard arrested him when the ship docked, and he was extradited, tried, convicted, and served three years in Western Penitentiary in Pittsburgh. In the second half of Harry’s life, he came to the South, where he spent his last thirty-five years as a revered and successful Methodist minister and church official. He was a district superintendent overseeing a hundred congregations at the time of his death in 1942. In 1934, when President Roosevelt spoke to a crowd of 75,000 in North Mississippi, Harry was chosen to give the invocation. Nobody in the huge crown knew the preacher at the lectern was an ex-con.
