Freedom to speak is right and a privilege that is greatly taken for granted in North America. We protect it fiercely, encourage it in other parts of the world where voices are silenced to protect greater agendas, and embrace it as a birthright fought for and won by our foreparents. And yet…there are still certain topics that are universally considered taboo, some issues that are difficult to discuss, ground where we fear to tread in our social talk.
That’s where Forbidden Conversations comes in.
We’re invited to listen in as a few ordinary Americans discuss some very hot-button issues, outside of academia and television, and encouraged to consider all sides of relevant issues. It’s not without risks, which the characters appreciate and accept, eventually riling up other eavesdroppers to their peril. It very well might inflame the reader as well.
Dare to read Forbidden Conversations, and you are challenging yourself to rethink the world you know with fresh eyes.
