SAINT JOHN HUNT REFLECTS ON HIS MOTHER'S LIFE AND HER UNTIMELY PASSING
“In St. John Hunt's heartfelt memoir, DOROTHY, "An Amoral and Dangerous Woman": The Murder of E. Howard Hunt's Wife – Watergate's Darkest Secret, Dorothy and E. Howard Hunt's son reveals startling and unknown details about the Watergate scandal. He answers many questions about his mother’s role as a co-conspirator, and tells how he, at eighteen, helped his father in the cover-up. DOROTHY is the tale of a mother and son reluctantly involved in a terrifying family business at the center of one of the most sordid chapters in twentieth century American history. DoOROTHY exposes dangerous truths – it was an act of courage to write it.”
--Mark Lane, New York Times best-selling author of Rush to Judgment and Plausible Denial.

“As a black man and a white man, both writers and educators, we came together to cowrite a book about how systemic racism and police brutality affect the lives of young people in America, in order to create an important, unique, and honest work that would give young people and the people and the people who educate them a tool for talking about these difficult but abolutely vital conversations," said Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.
Both Jason and Brendan are successful young adult novelists. Jason's "When I was the Greatest" received the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe award for new talent, while Brendan's debut novel, "The Gospel of Winter" was named one of the Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults in 2015 by the American Library Association.'

Occasionally I do a Thursday afternoon show that sounds like a 2 AM show, so that people who do not stay up late can experience the deep side. Well, this is a reverse of that concept. This show sounds more like my afternoon shows. Bands like War, Aaron Neville, and Steve Miller will appear. Plus some oddball ditties by After All and Marconi Union. I did slip one long jam in, just for giggles. Cool Breeze
