Bruce Feiler, who will be appearing at the National Book Festival in 2010, talks about the power of books.
“Words, books are really bigger than politics.”
Bruce Feiler is one of America’s most popular voices on faith, family and finding meaning in everyday life. He is the best-selling author of nine books, including “Walking the Bible” and “America's Prophet.” His latest book, “The Council of Dads: My Daughters, My Illness and the Men Who Could Be Me” (William Morrow), describes how he responded to a diagnosis of cancer by asking six men from all passages of his life to be present through the passages of his young daughters' lives.
