David speaks with author Donna Johnson about her latest book Holy Ghost Girl: A Memoir. As a child, Johnson spent her years traveling on the road as her mother worked as an organist for big tent revival preacher David Terrell. A truly polarizing figure, David Terrell spent his years preaching from town to town to more than 2000 worshipers at a time — many of whom gave enormously to Terrell with some selling all of their possessions to be on the road with Brother Terrell. Johnson’s book Holy Ghost Girl recounts the reverend and his travelling show in detail.
