Ken Ilgunas decided that he wanted to take a walk. It was a long walk. Ilgunas hiked from Fort McMurray in Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas. He was following the route of the proposed Keystone/XL pipeline. He tried to follow the actual course so most of his trip was made across grasslands and range lands. He was trying to stay off the roadways. Ilgunas was trespassing on private land for most of his journey. But he never got arrested. Nobody shot him. And he had some amazing adventures and met some wonderful people along the way. This is a fabulous adventure story.

Simon Sebag Montefiore has just published a history book that is a must read. He's also a fabulous person to interview. Here's my review that just ran in the Cox Ohio newspapers:

Over the years that I have been paying attention I have noticed that women tend to read mostly fiction. Men, if they read any books at all, frequently prefer non-fiction. At least that is what I have been observing.

Shrug return to the WYSO studios as they prepare to release their new album, Age of Ashes.  The band performed live on Kaleidoscope and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about writing and recording the album and the upcoming release party.

Melissa Fay Greene has had a long and successful career as a writer of non-fiction books. She is frequently approached by people who are wondering if she can help them to find publishers or agents for their book projects. Greene is patient and polite. Even so the sheer volume of these requests can cause her to be somewhat hesitant to offer advice. One day she was contacted by a woman in Atlanta about a book idea. Greene, who lives in Atlanta, agreed to meet the woman for coffee.
