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."
