Amarillo Author McKay Leads Discussion

The HPPR Radio Readers Book Club is an on-air, on-line community of readers exploring themes of interest to those who live and work on the High Plains. The 2021 Spring Read – Culture in a Common Land will begin mid-January with Amarillo’s Marcy McKay leading a discussion of the first book The Poisonwood Bible. Marcy is a life coach as well as an award-winning novelist. She loves writing AND helping others and lists several things she wants us to know about herself. First, she’s survived both a house fire and raising two teenagers. She met her husband on the bus to summer camp when they were 14. She’s learned that her biggest struggles became her greatest strengths. Her recently released When Life Feels Like a House Fire: Transforming Your Stress was named Amazon’s #1 Hot New Release. Her belief that there’s more good in the world than bad will serve her well as she provides Radio Reader BookBytes every Monday during our discussion of The Poisonwood Bible. Listen live at 7:45 a.m. during Morning Edition and again at 6:45 p.m. during All Things Considered.
