When they think about the publishing industry, many readers can immediately call to mind the big outfits: HarperCollins, Random House, and MacMillan. But there are many small publishing companies scattered all across the country, and even locally. Our guest today, Julia Royston, is a former school librarian who began her first publishing company as a way to publish her own books in the exact way she wanted them. She jokes that she has “control issues”. But those issues led her to become an entrepreneur who now owns and operates two publishing companies that have been around for over 12 years, in an age when most businesses are lucky to make it past the 3-5 year mark. BK Royston Publishing and Royal Media and Publishing, located in Southern Indiana, are her two full service imprints that primarily publish black authors; one focusing on children’s, inspirational, and religious books and the other publishing more mainstream fiction such as mysteries, urban fiction, and romance. In this week’s episode, she talks to us about why it’s so important to have more diverse books in libraries and schools, what the biggest challenge was to starting her publishing company, and how she looks for creative ways such as virtual book fairs to try to promote her authors in the COVID era. Books and Links Discussed in this episode: 1- Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder 2- Are You There God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume 3- A Bag of Marbles by Joseph Joffo 4- Marianne the Librarian by Julia Royston 5- The Book of David: My East Harlem Love Story by Betty Winston Baye' 6- Terrance the Terrific by Julia Royston 7- Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones 8- Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers by Russell Brunson 9- Grace Over Grind: How Grace Will Take Your Business Where Grinding Can't by Shae Bynes 10- Whiskey and Ribbons by Leesa Cross-Smith Julia Royston's podcast on BuzzSprout: Live Your Best Life YouTube Channel: BK RoystonPublishing

Bruce Maples with Forward Kentucky joins Gay and Ivonne following Tuesday's disappointing loss of a grassroots candidate.
On this week’s Truth To Power, we gather folks into the virtual studio for a community conversation about food, agriculture, solidarity, justice, and autonomy. Forward Radio’s Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!) and Hart Hagan (The Climate Report / Let’s Talk) discuss these issues with Stephen Bartlett, Director of Forward Radio Community Partner, Sustainable Agriculture of Louisville (http://salouisville.org). He’s also an active member of the Black Lives Matter movement, and works with the Common Earth Gardens at 3130 Millers Lane (volunteer days start later in July on Tuesdays 6-8pm). Common Earth Gardens is dedicated to the empowerment and improved quality of life of refugee families and Louisville communities through agricultural opportunities. The program bolsters mental and physical health, community integration and access to healthy food and supplemental income. Common Earth Gardens supports self-reliance by facilitating access to land, culturally-appropriate training, community education, technical assistance and opportunities for supplemental income in Louisville, KY. Common Earth Garden’s goals are to empower refugee participants to: - Utilize their extensive agricultural skills and experience to reduce food costs - Continue traditions from their homelands that will ease acculturation to the Louisville Metro area - Build entrepreneurial skills and supplement family income by selling produce through local outlets Common Earth Gardens, formerly the Refugee Agriculture Partnership Program (RAPP) was started in 2007 by Lauren Goldberg and Stephen Bartlett within the Kentucky Office for Refugees (KOR). The first sites established for refugee agriculture were the 7th Street Community Garden and the Southside Community Garden. In 2014, the RAPP program moved to be a program of Catholic Charities of Louisville and supported the establishment of Maplewood Apartments Garden, Francis Center Garden, St. Ignatius Community Garden and Bethany United Garden. Currently, Common Earth Gardens supports six sites. On Truth to Power each week, we gather Forward Radio programmers and friends to discuss the state of the world, the nation, the state, and the city!

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” These words, from Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice are, perhap, some of the reasons why many readers swoon over his character and develop a love for Austen and her works. Other readers, though, like our guest this week, Amanda Beverly, see their families or people they know in the quirky individuals who make up Austen’s communities. Whatever your reason for liking Austen’s world, there is a way you can immerse yourself in it, which is through The Jane Austen Festival, an annual event that, due to COVID, is virtual this year. Running from July10-12, the festival includes a variety of workshops, author talks, and Q&A that helps attendees get a taste of what the Regency Period and Austen are like. In our episode this week, Amanda talks about how she became involved with the Jane Austen Society of North America--Greater Louisville Region and what their meetings are like, how it seems the things she can learn about Jane Austen’s books and her time period are endless, and why newbies shouldn’t feel intimidated, and why the Louisville chapter of the society is known as the Fashion region.
