In the Moment ... October 12, 2017 Show 197 Hour 2

In a world thrumming with joy and agony, sometimes the only thing you can do is pick up a pen. Fortunately, sometimes that's also the best thing you can do. Denice Turner offers a Geek Speak Lecture at Black Hills State University this afternoon. She's the author of the memoir "Worthy." She joins us now for a preview of "Tasting Life Twice: On Life-Writing and Wellbeing"

Denice Turner teaches at Black Hills State University. Her book "Worthy" was chosen as a Dakota Midday Book Club selection.

"Worthy" is a memoir. In it the author searches for truth after her mother's mysterious death in a fire. Denice Turner joins Dakota Midday to talk about a writer's challenge to craft herself into a character, the struggle to find an authentic sense of self worth, and the joys (and occasional despair) of parenting.
