Book Hour: Letters of Note: Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience


Here is a book you should read for the joy of reading. It contains the letters and correspondence of many figures in history at momentous times. However, it also contains some of he most wonderfully written letters from average people regarding unusual situations. The book will touch, move, inspire, and provoke you to laughter and tears. There is a sweetness to some letters and cold-blooded moments. The letter writers range from Kurt Vonnegut, to Jack the Ripper, to Queen Elizabeth, to Iggy Pop, Elvis Presley, and over a hundred more. Our conversation with the author, Shaun Usher, brings some of the stories alive and tries to capture the magic of one of the best gift books in years. If you appreciate great writing, I promise you’ll enjoy this book and conversation.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
