WYSO

Best of the Book Nook: Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith, by Kathleen Norris

Apr 15, 2019

If you are someone who looks for author interviews on the radio, TV, internet or wherever then you probably have noticed many programs tend to feature mostly fiction or primarily non-fiction. Over the years that I have been talking to authors I have tried to include a variety of selections from both fiction and non-fiction categories.

Non-fiction can sometimes take us to different levels of learning and insight. When we look at history we can experience many aspects of our humanity that are rarely included in fiction. Then there's religion and spirituality and belief. In this interview with Kathleen Norris we talked about how she came back to organized religion and how that took place. I had not listened to this conversation again until just recently. 20 years after it was recorded it feels as fresh as could be.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro LibraryWright Memorial Public Library, and Microsun Lamps.
