What We Are Reading host, Tammy Bobrowsky, spoke with Marc Perrusquia.  Marc is a reporter in Memphis, Tennessee, his new book is  called A Spy in Canaan: How the FBI used a famous photographer to infiltrate the Civil Rights Movement. This book is the result of years of research that started with a Freedom of Information request in 2007 and ended recently after a lawsuit with the FBI and now we finally have the story of Civil Rights insider turned FBI informant, Ernest Withers. 

Let us know what you are looking forward to reading.  Send it along to comments@kaxe.org or hit up the KAXE/KBXE What We are Reading group on Facebook.
