WVTF Essay Evening: w 1 fm Goose Creek

Tonight (Tuesday 29 March) at 7:30 WVTF will present “Evening Edition: Writers Writing”–part essay night, part interview with Sarah Honenberger about her book Catcher Caught. It will also include essays about ponds, skin cream and humpty dumpty. Fragments readers will have read this tale; now you can hear it!

Then coming up this weekend on Radio IQ, at 7 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, the program will be re-broadcast…that’s on our sister station. It will be combined with last week’s essay night–about writing & grief–so that the two programs fill a complete hour.
