WILLIE DRYE, our resident hurricane expert, joined us for his monthly visit to discuss recent hurricane activity, including the historical hurricanes that have begun with the letter, "I".
FROM HIS AMAZON PAGE:
"Drye is a contributing editor for National Geographic News and has written about hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis and dozens of other topics. His stories about Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Gustav and Hurricane Ike set page-view records at NG News. His work also has been published in the Washington Post, Toronto Globe and Mail, and other regional and national publications.
Drye's first book, Storm of the Century: The Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, was praised by Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, and others, and is regarded by many meteorologists as the definitive book about this tragic and fascinating event. The book was made into a documentary film by the History Channel titled "Nature's Fury: Storm of the Century."
SEAN TYLER FOLEY, an actor, safety consultant, keynote speaker, instructor, and author, will join us to discuss how to move your audience to action. We will also discuss his latest release, "The Power to Speak Naked".
FROM HIS WEBSITE:
"Sean Tyler Foley (or STF as he's affectionately known) loves helping people find their voice so they can get their message out to the world. It is the focus of his book, "The Power to Speak Naked", and it’s what truly makes him feel alive. As a performer, speaker, and a general seeker of attention, he knows how hard it can be to get in front of an audience. Facilitating that, even in the smallest way for others, is what he was put on this earth to do.
STF is a husband, father, son, and performer, in that order. Some days he feels like he has dabbled in every industry on the planet, from oil and gas, to aviation, to film and television, but that diverse experience is what has made him so versatile!
Regardless of the industry or the titles he has held, what they all had in common was promoting and encouraging people to be heard and understood. The skills and resources he has garnered along the way have enabled him to become an entertaining professional speaker and a knowledgeable trainer, who aspires others to reach for their dreams."
STEVEN T. COLLIS, an attorney, law professor, author, and the founding faculty director of Texas's Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center, joined us to discuss how his knowledge has influenced Supreme Court decisions, and to talk about all of his books, including his latest release, "The Immortals".
FROM HIS WEBSITE:
"Steven T. Collis is the author of the nonfiction books The Immortals and Deep Conviction and the novel At Any Cost. He is a law professor at the University of Texas-Austin School of Law and founding faculty director of UT's Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center and related Law & Religion Clinic. Prior to his appointment at UT, he was the Olin-Darling Research Fellow in the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School and an equity partner at Holland & Hart LLP, where he was the chair of the firm’s nationwide religious institutions and First Amendment practice group.
He is a sought-after speaker on both writing and religion law to audiences across the United States, including foreign diplomats from countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and South America on behalf of the United States State Department.
