Author Bruce HopkinsIn his new book Truth in the Rivers, author, educator, and political activist Bruce Hopkins weaves together seemingly disparate elements. Via poems, essays, photographs, and paintings, he explores Japanese American Internment during World War II, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, and the importance of exploring nature's lessons with children. Bruce's deceptively slim new book, just released by Ice Cube Press, is an artful tapestry of complex and important issues. Tune in to The Studio this week for a thought-provoking hour with Cheryl, Bruce, and his wife Jeanette.

When Foxes Wore Red Vests


Writers' Voices welcomes environmental educator, writer and historian Dr. Bruce Hopkins to the show this week. Dr. Hopkins has written the book "When Foxes Wore Red Vests", a collection of essays, poetry, drawings and photographs that demonstrate how sense-of-place can serve as a role-model for future generations, as well as helping us learn how we can best live in our communities and with the natural world around us.

Dr. Hopkins career has included teaching in Nebraska, New York, and Iowa, and serving as chief administrator of an Iowa area education agency. Bruce’s life now centers on helping people of all ages connect with nature, a greater sense of community, and the literature of place.
