Special guest Daisy Karam-Read, author of From Manhattan to Mississippi: A New Yorker Falls in Love with the South.
When Daisy left the razzle-dazzle of New York City to move to Mississippi, she took a huge leap of faith. Daisy Karam-Read, an urbanite to the core, thrived on Manhattan's fast tempo and glamour, and never anticipated living in a sleepy southern town. Marriage to the southern gentleman of her dreams brought her abruptly to Mississippi, casting this international travel-loving Yankee into a complex culture unlike anything she had ever known.
