'On Second Thought' For Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019
Today's show highlighted authors Soniah Kamal and Goldie Taylor, along with discussions on sports fans and information on an upcoming Georgia entertainment caucus.
"Unmarriageable" is author Soniah Kamal's modern adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," set in Pakistan. The novel follows teacher Alys Binat as she navigates family, romance and her own misconceptions about the dashing Valentine Darsee. Kamal joined "On Second Thought" to discuss the inspirations for her novel and her appearance at the Savannah Book Festival next month.
We heard from author Goldie Taylor, who added some new picks to our "Southern Reading List." That's our list of authors and readers sharing books that define and reflect the South. Michael Lewis, marketing professor at Emory University, also joined the show to discuss how to measure good and bad sports fans.
Finally, we heard how a newly created entertainment caucus could help Georgia's music industry. Rep. Erica Thomas announced plans to co-chair the new caucus. She joined "On Second Thought," along with Grammy Award-winning music producer Matt Still, to discuss the caucus' potential impact.
