  • Houston Authors Bill White, Lacy Johnson, David Berg and More: Houston Matters for Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014

    authors_bannerFrom time to time on Houston Matters, we speak with authors either traveling through or living in Greater Houston. Some write about historical events, others tell personal stories, still others pen books reflecting on our life and times. On this special edition of the program, we listen back to some of our favorite author interviews.

    We hear the personal, harrowing stories of authors David Berg and Lacy Johnson – Houstonians who wrote memoirs examining violent episodes in their past. Berg recounts the kidnap and murder of his brother; Johnson discusses how a romantic relationship when she was younger turned from love to kidnapping and abuse.

    We also discuss history – we talk with author Ronald Goodwin about the history of African-Americans in Houston. And we chat with former Houston Mayor Bill White about what he calls “America’s Fiscal Constitution.”

    And we consider how Greater Houston – and society at large – looks through the eyes of an introvert. We talk with Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert’s Way – Leading a Quiet Life in a Noisy World.
