    The Evangelist by James Roderick Burns

    The Evangelist by James Roderick Burns

    Rose is itching to get home and let the pencil loose on the page, but a chance encounter with a street evangelist changes her trajectory. Will she get the chance to etch the contours of his skin, or does the universe have other plans? Afterward, we talk with James Roderick Burns about how everyday encounters become small moments of inspiration that find their way into his stories. You’ll also hear Rod’s passion for New York history, and specifically Anthony Comstock, founder of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice. Yep, it’s as interesting as it sounds!
