Hour 2: Marisa Labozzetta
Author Marisa Labozzetta joins Amerika Now during the second hour of the show to discuss her latest book, Sometimes It Snows In America, a novel loosely based on a true account.
The story centers around a rebellious young girl from Somalia who comes to America. Born into Somali royalty on her father’s side and Saudi Arabian wealth on her mother’s, Fatma is given away at infancy and, at age 12, forced into an arranged marriage with a young Peace Corps worker. Prejudice and cultural demands lead to a number of painful promises that will dictate the course of her life on two continents.
Sometimes It Snows In America is loosely based on the true account of an African woman’s descent into an American hell, and finds its echo in the descent of her native Somalia into its own hell of violent desperation.
The book leaves the reader with the gifts of unsuspected connection as well as surprising hope.
Marisa Labozzetta is the author of the novel, Stay With Me, Lella, and a collection of short stories, At the Copa. She was a finalist for the 2009 Binghamton University John Gardner Fiction Award and a Pushcart Prize nominee for At the Copa.

Hour 3: Jeff Flocken
Jeff Flocken, D.C. Office Director for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, joins the show during the final hour to discuss his and co-author’s Julie Scardina’s book, Wildlife Heroes: 40 Leading Conservationists and the Animals They Are Committed to Saving.
From a captive black bear to an orphaned rhino and a sickly puppy or kitten, every animal counts. But did you know that nearly one-third of all known species of animals are being threatened with extinction today, or that we’re losing the battle to save our planet’s animal life? Entire species of animals are facing catastrophic declines that we’re unable to stop, control, or even explain in some cases; and illegal wildlife trade is only eclipsed in scope and scale by drugs and guns. Fortunately, there are committed and resourceful individuals around the world who are working to address these problems and save imperiled species—they are wildlife conservationists who are some of the most important heroes on the planet.
One of those heroes, Jeff Flocken, joins me this evening to discuss the recent book he co-authored with Julie Scardina called Wildlife Heroes: 40 Leading Conservationists and the Animals They Are Committed to Saving. The book is a combination of unique real-life stories, stunning photographs, and fascinating facts about the amazing animals depicted and makes the point that we can turn the tide and save species in decline.
Jeff will discuss such issues as climate change, habitat loss, and illegal trade and their effects on animals around the world. In addition, he’ll talk about how we can all help to save these amazing animal species, and why it’s so important that we do save them.
Jeff Flocken is the D.C. Office Director for the International Fund for Animal Welfare where he leads the organization’s policy experts advocating for animals. In this capacity, he works on campaigns combating the wildlife trade and conserving polar bears, lions, whales, tigers, and elephants among other species. Previously, Flocken worked for the U.S. Government doing international species conservation. He’s been a consultant on movies, books and television shows addressing wildlife issues, and serves on advisory boards for several wildlife organizations. Jeff is also the co-founder of the Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders initiative which mentors and provides training for up-and-coming wildlife leaders. He has a law degree from Wayne State Law School, and graduated with honors from the University of Michigan.
