09/14/15 - On the next Topical Currents we turn to Literary Contributor Ariel Gonzalez, for an interview with esteemed novelist and short story writer Jim Shepard. 

His latest work is “THE BOOK OF ARON,” set in the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust.  It’s a tale of a Jewish boy sent to an orphanage run by a virtuous Polish doctor. Ariel Gonzalez is an English Professor at Miami-Dade College.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
