Civic Cocktail: Combating White Supremacy + The Art of Racing in the Rain
Civic Cocktail: Combating White Supremacy + The Art of Racing in the Rain

Deadly violence linked to white supremacy is on the rise in this country. King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg tells host Joni Balter that much of this violence involves white males who are alienated and angry. University of Washington political science professor Christopher Sebastian Parker adds, "...it removes all doubt of the fact that this is a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic country, period." In the second half, Garth Stein - best-selling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain - shares his thoughts about the book being adapted for the big screen and whether Hollywood got it right. Stein also talks about the inspiration behind the book and reveals tidbits about his next novel, A Couple of Old Birds, set in Seattle and influenced by his 89-year-old mother.
