Fannie Flagg & Odie Lindsey

Bestselling novelist Fannie Flagg joins Marrie Stone to chat about her latest, The Whole Town's Talking.  Lovers of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe will fall in love all over again with Fannie's characters, her world, and her ability to render southern charm onto the page and infuse her characters with life. She talks about writing with dyslexia, how acting helps writing, and what she's learned about writing and life over the years.

In the second half, short story writer Odie Lindsey discusses his debut collection, We Come to Our Senses. He talks about his experiences in Iraq, the need to include women in the narrative of war, and the importance of the advice "revise, revise, revise."  Plus, lots of other wonderful wisdom.
