Host Jim Schumock presents a special extended interview with Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie, whose latest book is The Enchantress of Florence: A Novel.  In the book, a tall, yellow-haired, young European traveler calling himself “Mogor dell’Amore,” the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the Emperor Akbar, lord of the great Mughal empire, with a tale to tell that begins to obsess the imperial capital, a tale about a mysterious woman, a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, and her impossible journey to the far-off city of Florence.

The Enchantress of Florence
is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man’s world. It is the story of two cities, unknown to each other, at the height of their powers–the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant Akbar the Great wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire, and the treachery of his sons, and the equally sensual city of Florence during the High Renaissance, where Niccolò Machiavelli takes a starring role as he learns, the hard way, about the true brutality of power.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Bruce Jacobs, author of Race Manners about how to talk to each other in this new era of race relations. RACE MANNERS is a weapon for all people of good will. It encourages and equips people to honestly confront racial assumptions, misunderstandings and hostilities in everyday life, and it breaks down the workings of racial prejudice in ways we can all understand. At a time when the ostensible "War On Terror" has spawned malevolence and misinformation, RACE MANNERS is an antidote to the politics of fear.
