The most in-demand toys for children are becoming more complex, and some can turn dangerous if not properly vetted or used.
Guest Host: Marc Fisher
A teenage boy and his mother seek solace after tragedy in fictional Medgar, Kentucky, the coal town where her father serves as veterinarian and generations of people had lived off the land. They find hope, trouble, wisdom and questions in near equal measure as a story about morals and relationships unfolds. We talk with local writer Christopher Scotton about his debut novel, the writing process and publishing his first work.
