Nancy's Bookshelf: J.R Henson, Jim Hasse & Amy Antongiovanni
J.R Henson is a fourth generation Paradise resident and survivor of the Camp Fire. He chats with Nancy about his third book, The Camp Fire: Dreams, Nightmares, Hopes.
His stories and poems take the reader through the reality and the notional idea of both the day of the 11-08-2018 Camp Fire, and the complexity of the weeks after by trying to find balance again in both states of mind.
Also on today's show, Jim Hasse, the author of a short story ”Bella, the service dog” and Butte College English teacher Amy Antongiovanni reads two of her poems: “Painting the Graces” for local poet and author Salvador Casa and “The Seasons” Inspired by a painting by Lee Krasner, widow of Jackson Pollock
