Journalist Dan Stockman has been plying his trade for more than a decade here at the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. And you’ve heard his voice regularly on WBOI, as well.

Now, he is entered the world of fiction, with his debut novel, "Brood X." He recently sat down with WBOI’s Julia Meek to talk about his writing. 

Dan Stockman will be signing copies and reading from 'Brood X', at its release party this Saturday, November 30th, 5-to-7 p.m., at Hyde Brothers, Booksellers on Wells Street in Fort Wayne.

The International Day of Peace is Saturday, September 20th, and Fort Wayne musicians are commemorating the occasion with a special, Midwest premier of Karl Jenkins' The Peacemakers.

The show includes the Heartland Chamber Chorale, Heartland Festival Chorus and Orchestra, and the Fort Wayne Children's Choir singing the words of some of history's great peace advocates.

WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with the Chorale's Maestro, Robert Nance, and soloist, Lori Sandstrom, to find out more about The Peacemakers.
