Best of the Book Nook: White Doves at Morning, by James Lee Burke


James Lee Burke has made more appearances on the program than any other author. In 2002 I interviewed him for his book "White Doves at Morning," a stand-alone novel that remains one of my favorite books that he has written. There are quite a few books to choose from, he will publish his 40th book in May.

I have many favorite interviews with Jim as well but I have to admit that this one holds a special place in my heart. Everything about it felt just right. If this isn't my favorite conversation with J.L.B. then it is certainly among the top three.

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 Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
