When media personality and author Cyrus Webb started the co-ed book club Conversations in 2006 it was with the purpose of connecting readers with authors, giving them a platform to interact with one another. Over the past decade Conversations Book Club has hosted over 200 authors and author-related events and been featured locally in Mississippi’s Clarion Ledger and Jackson Advocate Newspaper and nationally by the Chicago Tribune. Men, women and even children of all ages have benefited from the free reading group, and Webb has been able to show that reading is a universal connector with people around the world.
As Conversations Book Club celebrates its 11th year, Webb is excited to announce that the event is being kicked off by hosting author Robert Leon Davis, whose book RUNNING SCARED is now in talks to become a movie. The book chronicles Davis’ journey from respected police officer to fugitive and what led him to turn things around for himself.
“Davis and I connected in 2011,” Webb says, having interviewed the author on Conversations LIVE the radio show at that time. “I knew then the book and his story was powerful. I’m glad that a larger audience will be able to benefit from its message of redemption.”
On Saturday, October 7th Robert Leon Davis will join Webb in person in Mississippi in the following three events that are not to be missed:
- At 9:30a.m. Webb will host a special “Breakfast with Books” with author Robert Leon Davis at Taste of Detroit Restaurant in Brandon, MS (1530 W. Government St. * Brandon, MS). Those who attend can buy breakfast and enjoy the hour of conversation with the author.
- At 2p.m. central the two will be on LIVE on the radio station WYAD 94.1 FM in Yazoo City discussing the book, Davis’ experiences that led him to write it and what he hopes readers take away from it. The show can be heard live online around the world at wyadonline.com.
- At 6p.m. Webb will do a meet and greet with Davis at Appetizers Restaurant (3000 Hwy 80 E * Pearl, MS), giving those who attend an opportunity to learn more about the book and its message. The first 10 people to show up for the special 90-minute event will eat free!
