Talkies – August 13, 2019

On today’s Talkies guest host Max Pringle speaks with journalist Zahra Hankir about the collection of essays she edited titled “Our Women on the Ground: Essays by Arab Women Reporting from the Arab World.” The essays shine a light on this often misunderstood region of the world from the point of view of the women who cover it.

In the second half of the show, host Kris Welch speaks with author Bruce Conforth about “Up Jumped the Devil: the Real Life of Robert Johnson.” This new biography of the legendary Delta bluesman goes behind the legend and mystery surrounding his short but impactful life and helps the reader understand the man behind the myth.
