REAL TALK IN REAL TIME With guest Natalie Silverstein @simpleactsguide We chatted about mothers, mothering, grief, and being honest about the person we’ve lost even if it’s a complicated relationship. We also talked about service, kindness, and showing up for others. What an honest, lively conversation. Thank you, Natalie.
Robert Gwaltney Jr (LIVE) on 4-9-2022
Dara Levan chats with Robert Gwaltney Jr. Author an advocate for early childhood literacy. Robert shared about his publishing journey, losing his sister at a young age, growing up as one of “four feral boys” in a small Georgia town, and balancing his writing life with a full-time job at Easter Seals of Atlanta. And we chatted about Robert’s stunning debut novel, “The Cicada Tree.”
This is our second conversation in three days. And the first ever Saturday morning EVERY SOUL HAS A STORY LIVE. We didn’t plan to chat twice. But the Universe had other plans.
A gracious, generous soul, Robert pivoted with me. Today’s connective conversation included laughter when my phone fell mid-recording! We decided our collective energy must just be that ebullient. 😂
