Will the D.C. Council overturn Initiative 77? Can a Republican win a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland? And what's going on with the Montgomery County Executive race?
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.
