On this week's radio edition of Zona Politics with Jim Nintzel, author Phillip Patrick talks about his book author of Blood at the Root, a nonfiction account of a 1912 racial cleansing that took place in Forsyth  County, Georgia. The book has been celebrated as one of the best of 2016 by The New York Times, Boston Globe and many others.

Then author Pamela Rotner Sakamoto discusses Midnight in Broad Daylight, an fascinating account of a Japanese Amercian family caught between two worlds during World War II.

Both authors were in town over the weekend at the Festival of Books.

Zona Politics airs at 5 p.m. Sunday on community radio KXCI, 91.3 FM, and at 1 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sundays on KEVT, 1210 AM.
