January 25, 2023
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Author Brad Buchanan PhD.Few people have survived the nightmare of a stem cell transplant gone sideways. Fewer still have had the audacity to write about the miraculous yet bewildering experience of becoming a genetic chimera. Brad Buchanan breaks this taboo and offers readers eloquent, surrealistic and profoundly moving passages about his dramatic transformation and amazing recovery. His fourth book of poems, tells in lyrically oblique confessions and hallucinatory vignettes the difficult but nevertheless wonderful history and aftermath of the author’s 2016 stem cell transplant. The book explores the problems of survivor guilt, chemical dependency, and unprocessed or displaced trauma, while tracing an ultimately positive narrative of recovery and acceptance. He holds a PhD from Stanford University and taught British and Postcolonial Literature, as well as Creative Writing, at Sacramento State University until his retirement in 2016. His poetry, fiction and scholarly articles have appeared in nearly 200 journals.Kathryn also interviews Author Aliza J. Sokolow. Award-winning food photographer and private chef Aliza J. Sokolow introduces children to healthy eating and engaging with our planet through a bold and bright color-and-activity book. Filled with 30+ activities and journal pages, appealing to the senses of even the pickiest eaters, we learn valuable lessons such as how to grow an avocado tree at home and how families around the world eat. Author Katherine Schwarzenegger, chefs Scott Conant and Dorie Greenspan, as well as food writer and Top Chef judge Gail Simmons raved about it on Instagram. Sokolow's work has won an Emmy, earned two Emmy nominations, and a James Beard literary award. Her photography can be seen in the NY Times, Architectural Digest, Bon Appetit, Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times.
