The Local Take on WCLK

This week on The Local Take I speak with Jaqueline Holness about her first novel Destination Wedding. After all February is the month for love. Ms. Holness speaks to how her novel came into being after hearing a news report saying that African American women were unlikely to get married. She had just experienced a break-up and the news report was disheartening.
