Author Vendela Vida joins us in studio to talk about her latest book, "The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty." Part travel novel, part psychological thriller, the story follows a grieving American woman in Casablanca who is robbed of all of her money and identification.

We'll also get a preview of the festival with Executive Director Cherilyn Parsons.
