This is Thanksgiving week, when it’s worthwhile to look up from your pile of mashed potatoes and think about the world around you. I talk with Vanessa Diffenbaugh who writes with grace and compassion about a young woman making her way out of the foster care system in her book, The Language of Flowers .
Next, Maggie Linton talks with the heroic Kevin Sorbo, who’ll talk about what nearly struck him down in his bio, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal – and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life .
And finally a few words from the delightful Ellen Degeneres and her new memoir, Seriously, I’m Kidding .
But first, Maggie has the top-ten Non Fiction downloads from audible.com. [Original Broadcast Date: November 22, 2011]
