This Thursday at 7pm Carol Ruth Silver will be discussing her book Freedom Rider Diary: Smuggled Notes From Parchman Prison. We are very excited to have her in our store to share her stories. Carol experience first hand some of the most important events while involved with the Freedom Riders. She was kind enough to answer some questions before her event that will give you some insight into Carol Ruth Silver’s current focuses.

What are you reading?

The Power of Kindness: The Unexpected Benefits of Leading a Compassionate Life, Paperback by Piero Ferrucci (Author); Plus–
Frank Lloyd Wright Field Guide: His 100 Greatest Works, edited by Marie Clayton

Is there anything you’re particularly looking forward to the publication of?

Yes — Click City, a novel about the inside workings of Silicon Valley and techy San Francisco, by Heather Stallings, Now being serialized in the SF Chronicle, with a nod to Armistaud Maupin’s Tales of the City.

Are there standard titles or writers you like to recommend, either within or outside of your field?

To writers I would recommend All of Harry Potter for the clarity of its writing style and erudite but light references. And I think that Salman Rushdie’s book, The Moor’s Last Sigh, is a brilliant combination of history and fantasy into a delightful story, masterfully written.

Do you have a personal favorite book of all time? If so, can you share it and tell us why?  

I truly cannot choose one favorite, for I have read so many wonderful books, and my overflowing storage and bookshelves testify that I also cannot bear to give any of them up.

What’s next? Any upcoming book projects in the works that you can tell us about?

Not until I rest up from having finally finished and published Freedom Rider Diary.
