First Draft with Sarah Enni

Join me and Samantha Mabry, debut author of A FIERCE AND SUBTLE POISON*, in Dallas discussing JFK assassination conspiracy theories, grandmothers warnings about witches, and being close but not too close to dangerous things.

*Note: In the show, Sam refers to A FIERCE AND SUBTLE poison by its earlier title, LEAVES.
