On the Air About the Library Sessions

KTRS-MIZZOU-Header_9_7ll be on two local radio stations this week to talk about the interviews at St. Louis Public Library branches to be in my upcoming book, Growing Up St. Louis.

At 2:10 p.m. today, Oct. 4,   John Carney will quiz me on his show on KTRS AM 550. Then after 9 a.m. this Friday, Oct. 6, Jim Doyle will talk to me on the Radio Arts Foundation,  107.3 FM and 96.3 HD KNOU.


If nothing else, listening to the shows should be enough to get you to come to the interviews at the Buder Library on Saturday, October 7, or three other city library branches the following three Saturdays.
