Mark Brazaitis, Radio Star

Mark Brazaitis will appear tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11 a.m. on the Diane Rehm Show to discuss his short story collection The Incurables. Broadcast from Washington, D.C.—a block from Mark's high school—the Diane Rehm Show has been called "the gold standard of civic, civil discourse" and reaches more than 2.2 million listeners via NPR. Past guests have included Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, Julie Andrews, and Toni Morrison. 

"I have a lot in common with these guests," Mark says. "We are, for example, all inhabitants of planet earth."

He goes on to say, “I’m thrilled to talk about my book, and about how the themes of my book connect to the work I’ve been doing at WVU—my teaching, my work with the Appalachian Prison Book Project, and my talks at the Health Sciences Center on the importance of listening to and understanding patients.”

The Diane Rehm show is broadcast from WAMU 88.5.  For more information about Mark's upcoming appearance, see:
