Books By The Banks

  In his latest book, In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette, Hampton Sides tells the harrowing tale of the failed 1879 sailing expedition to the Arctic. Two years into the voyage, the Jeanette became trapped in ice, its hull breached, leaving her crew to find their way on foot across the endless ice at the top of the world. Hampton Sides joins us to discuss In the Kingdom of Ice. He will be in giving a talk at Books by the Banks October 11 at 11:00 AM.

During her recent time in Cincinnati for the Books by the Banks festival, New York Times bestselling author Jennifer S. Holland stopped by our studio to talk with Barbara Gray about her newest inspiring book, Unlikely Loves: 43 Heartwarming True Stories from the Animal Kingdom.
