Lit Bit: Signaling the Future

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on September 9, 2009 0 Comments


This Friday, I’ll be reading an abridged version of my story “Futures” on WYPR’s popular radio program, The Signal.  Listen for it on Baltimore’s NPR station, 88.1 FM.


“Futures” is the story of a woman who must consider two possible destinations: the comfort of home in Baltimore, or the challenge of a new career in Chicago.  It’s an excerpt from TRACKS, a novel in stories.  “Futures” was originally published in JMWW’s annual print anthology. 


The Signal takes listeners on a tour of Baltimore’s cultural landscape and airs every Friday at noon and again at 7 p.m.


Listen for my reading of “Futures” this Friday, September 11, at noon and at 7 p.m. on 88.1 FM.
