Conrad Balliet reads David Garrison's poem, "Terre Haute."

I read a lot of crime novels and some of them are very good. Occasionally I'll read one that completely dazzles me. "The Butcher's Hook" by Janet Ellis is one of those books that made me perspire with shock and astonishment. And this is her literary debut! Amazing.

Joy Kincard and Robert Stewart from the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument joined WYSO's Niki Dakota in studio live on Excursions to talk about the history of and upcoming activities at the Wilberforce, Ohio site.
