Author of 15 books, two appearances on the Today Show and an appearance on David Letterman, Staten will spotlight his books “Real Barbecue, A Guide to the Best Barbecue Joints in America;” “Kentucky Curiosities, a Travel Guide to Unusual Places in Kentucky;” and “Unauthorized America: A Travel Guide to the Places the Chamber of Commerce Won’t Tell You About.” Want to learn about the best back alley barbecue joints in a new town? Want to visit Kentucky but you don’t care about seeing horses?
