An Upcoming Event Here at TU: "The Personal and Political Stakes of Storytelling After War"

Sep 26, 2016

On this edition of our program, we speak with Phil Klay, a writer and veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps whose 2014 short-story collection, "Redeployment," won the National Book Award for Fiction. Klay will appear in our community soon as part of a "Creative Writing Celebration" being presented by TU's newly established Creative Writing segment within the Department of English. This two-day celebration will happen today and tomorrow, the 23rd and 24th, and you can learn more about it by calling 918-631-2814. Mr. Klay's address, as we learn on today's ST, will happen in Tyrrell Hall on the TU campus, beginning at 11am on Saturday the 24th; it's entitled "The Personal and Political Stakes of Storytelling After War." Also on our program today, commentator Barry Friedman has a crazy story about a comedian who almost died of a heart attack while in the Bahamas. Only it's not just a story; it's reality...and it was Friedman himself.
