Author – Halloween Week

Subjects – OWS and The Creature from Jekyll Island; Johnny Depp & Hunter S. Thompson; The Raven

This week on Book Talk I discuss the OWS movement and a book about the history and mystery of the Federal Reserve and the banking system in our country, The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. I then go on to discuss the fall of MF Global and Jon Corzine. I also examine the deep friendship between Johnny Depp and Hunter S. Thompson–a relationship that has given us great books and now a great film, The Rum Diary. Finally, in keeping with the Halloween theme on BTR, I end the show with a reading of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.
