Curiosity's CatsBruce Joshua Miller has worked in the book industry for thirty-five years, much of it as a sales rep (he was named Publisher's Weekly Sales Rep of the Year in 2013).  Miller previously edited two books and has written for public radio, the Chicago Tribune, and other publications.  In "Curiosity's Cats: Writers on Research" Miller commissioned thirteen authors to write original essays that read like fiction and tell the real story behind the story. More than anything, these fascinating explorations of hands-on research make the case for the importance of libraries and archives even in today's wired world.

Curiosity's Cats was published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

Any writer who needs to research (and I think that means every writer), and readers who like to see behind the curtain will definitely want to tune in to this weeks Writers Voices!

Faith Hope Love & Deployment Tune in to Writers' Voices this week to hear the fascinating stories behind two great new books written by strong women. 

First up, Heather Gray, with "Faith, Hope, Love & Deployment," a devotional for military families that she started writing with her husband David during his last deployment to Afghanistan.  Sadly, he was killed in action, but inspired by his last letter home which began "To answer the question of why I'm willing to lay my life on the line for my country...", Heather finished this truly needed book.

The second half of this week's show features the truly impressive Lillian Darr, now 92 and a resident of FairfieLillian Darrld.  Lilllian, author of a very entertaining look back on her life so far,  "Memoirs of a 90-year Old Hippie," will be joining us live in the KRUU studio.

Caroline and Monica are delighted to bring these two wonderful women to Writers' Voices!
