Maybe a word of advice. Maybe a sentence or two about some long-ago Christmas Eve. Maybe some scattered glimpses of their rapidly aging father, a man they might never really know. For the next fifteen years, the author talked to his sons on paper, as if they were adults, imagining what they might want to hear from a father who was no longer among the living.The result is Dad's Maybe Book, a funny, tender, wise, and enduring literary achievement that will squeeze the reader's heart with joy and recognition.Music by Molly Maher

Due to unforeseen circumstances Kerri Miller will not be hosting the Talking Volumes at the Parkway Theater on Oct 9 and 16th. Kerri and MPR News have selected Brandt Williams to host these events.MPR News correspondent Brandt Williams covers the city of Minneapolis with a focus on city and county government, public safety, courts and racial disparities.
Brandt has won regional and national awards for his work including a Silver Gavel, an Eric Sevareid, a Salute to Excellence Award from the National Association of Black Journalists and was named a finalist for the Scripps Howard Foundation's National Journalism Award. He was also a 2004 Knight Fellow, a Guggenheim Fellow in 2011 and 2015 and Brandt is a board member of Criminal Justice Journalists. Before coming to MPR in 2000, Brandt was the executive editor of Insight News, the state's largest African American-owned newspaper.When he's not doing journalism, Brandt plays guitar for his unappreciative cat and is an unapologetic sci-fi and fantasy book/tv/movie nerd.Oct 9 - Saeed Jones with Brandt Williams and music by K.RaydioOct 16 - Tim O'Brien with Brandt Williams and music by Molly MaherKerri will be back to host the November events at the Fitzgerald Theater.
