Lit Bit: “Freedom” on NPR for September 11

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on September 4, 2013 0 Comments

In honor of Patriot’s Day this coming September 11, Baltimore’s NPR station, 88.1 WYPR, will air my reading of “Freedom” on The Signal on Friday and Saturday September 6 and 7.


If you’re in the Baltimore-DC area, tune in to The Signal on WYPR, 88.1 FM at 7 p.m. on Friday or 1 p.m. on Saturday.


If you’re elsewhere, listen to the program live at


“Freedom” is an abridged story from Tracks: A Novel in Stories. It is the story of a soldier who grapples with war and love in the wake of September 11.


After my reading, stay tuned for details about the upcoming Lit & Art at the Baltimore Book Festival later this month.


The Signal is a weekly radio magazine that explores Maryland’s thriving artistic and cultural scene and is produced by Aaron Henkin and Lisa Morgan and hosted by Andy Bienstock.
