Historical Writer Philip Gerard Philip Gerard last joined us as he began his historical Civil War series in Our State Magazine last fall. His brand of creative non-fiction helped tell the stories of Civil War families left at home, slaves and freed slaves and even the non-battle stories of the soldiers. Mr. Gerard has now applied that method of story telling to other events in history, which he has compiled into a book of essays called The Patron Saint of Dreams. We'll talk about some of the essays, about storytelling and more. Guest Philip Gerard - Author and UNC Wilmington professor. His latest book is The Patron Saint of Dreams, a book of essays that recently won the 2012 Gold IPPY Award for the Essay (by Independent Publisher Magazine).
