Conway native Brock Thompson, author of "The Un-Natural State: Arkansas and the Queer South," will appear on Jeopardy this Wednesday. 

In 2010, the Times published excerpts of Thompson's book, which gives an overview of gay and lesbian life in Arkansas in the twentieth century. Thompson now lives in Washington, D.C., where he is a programs coordinator for the Library of Congress Poetry and Literature Center. The show, which was taped in September, will air this Wednesday at 2 p.m. The Log Cabin Democrat has more

Hopefully Thompson will have as much luck as the amazing Leonard Cooper
