Author Nadine Cohodas will be the guest on the May "Conversations from St. Norbert College" television show hosted by Kevin Quinn. They will discuss Cohodas's books and her life experiences.

Cohodas, who grew up in Appleton, Wis., has written several books about race, politics and music, including "Princess Noire: The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Simone" and "Queen: The Life and Music of Dinah Washington."
