This month at the RolfPotts.com Writers page, I interview Eddy L. Harris, who is the author of four critically acclaimed books — Mississippi Solo: A River Quest, Native Stranger: A Black American’s Journey into the Heart of Africa, South of Haunted Dreams: A Memoir, and Still Life in Harlem: A Memoir — all of which partake of memoir, travelogue, adventure tale, and cultural reportage. I spoke to Eddy in person at the 2006 Key West Literary Seminar, where he was a featured speaker.

Here are a few highlights from the interview:

    I remember interviewing Eddy back when he was on his promotion tour for “South of Haunted Dreams.” I live in Colorado and volunteered for a alternative radio station KGNU in Boulder, Colorado. He was bigger than life to me, “literraly” and his passion for writing and interpreting his experiences just swallowed me. Talking about how big his BMW bike was and how he laid it down until help arrived was a surreal trip… in his world of finding the hurtful truth of racism. I suggested he cool his heels at a Denver historic jazz venue called “El Chaputetec” may be the wrong spelling but he will know what I’m talking about. I just love his free spirit to not be bound by material things, he has such a great spirit of discernment of what is really important in life. To freely move without attatchments and experience the love that is free everywhere. Fearless is what comes to mimd when I think of Eddy. Much love to you in all you do brother!

    Sorry, about the grammer and spell check. It’s a relasing evening in my world. PS. Eddy you look sooo good on the cover of your book back then. You were just a tall, thick drink of well needed water.
