Spoken Arts: Writer Jake Halpern

By Mary Van Vorst

Buffalo, NY – It's called "Braving Home: Dispatches from the Underwater Town, the Lava-Side Inn and other Extreme Locales." It's the story of five human beings who've chosen to live in America's most bizarre hometowns. They're people described by one reviewer as "noble, foolish, courageous, heroic and out of their minds -- all at the same time."

Click the "listen" icon above as WBFO's Mary Van Vorst talks with the book's author Jake Halpern in Spoken Arts.

You can hear Jake Halpern read from his book on Monday, July 14th at Talking Leaves on Elmwood Avenue at 7pm. It's free and open to the public.
