Looking For Salvation At The Dairy Queen

REPORTING: MICHAEL EDWARD MILLER

Last week on Around and About, we talked to a Southern author named Susan Gregg Gilmore.  We discussed her latest novel, called the The Improper Life of Bezellia Grove.  Today, Gilmore returns to our show, and we’re discussing another topic… her acclaimed debut novel, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen. The story is set in Ringgold, Georgia, and it was a surprise hit when it was published two years ago.

In this interview, Gilmore discusses how she wrote it, how the people in the real town of Ringgold have reacted to it, and how she uses Southern grace to deal with some of her worst critics.

Listen to the interview.
