Julie Moore reads Jane Kretschman's poem, "Writer Walks Her Dog."

Angie Grigaliunas has created a stunning imaginary world in her dystopian fantasy novel "Sowing." This is the first book in her "Purification Era" series. She is still planning the series and during this interview she stated that it will probably take at least eight books to complete it.
 

Did you realize that over the last several decades millions of people around the world who have been living in poverty have seen their standards of living improve? It is true.

This has been happening in many other countries as well.

Lisa Lutz gave us one of the standout novels of 2016. "The Passenger" was so clever, so enthralling, so devilishly twisted, that I had Lisa on the program for the hardcover release early in the year, then after I had spoken to her that first time I was so enchanted by her wit (and her novel) that I invited her back to the program for another visit when the book was issued in paperback later in the year.

Conrad Balliet reads Marian Schwilk-Thomas' poem, "Lightning Strikes Touchdown Jesus."

The Dayton Literary Peace Prize was founded in 2005 - ten years after the Dayton Peace Accords ended the war in Bosnia.  The prize honors authors from around the world for fiction, non-fiction and lifetime achievement. And it's the only international literary peace prize in the United States.
