"The ABCs of Parenthood: An Alphabet of Parenting Advice"

Aired on Wednesday, November 8th.

On this edition of ST, we speak with Deborah Copaken, a bestselling author and award-winning photographer. She's one of the two creators of a striking new book called "The ABCs of Parenthood: An Alphabet of Parenting Advice." As noted of this book by a writer at Parents Magazine: "You will come back to 'The ABCs of Parenthood' again and again, whenever you need to remember the big picture or the fact that children are as breathtaking as the images on these pages." And further, from the novelist Ayelet Waldman (author of 'Love and Treasure'): "Deborah Copaken and [co-author] Randy Polumbo are the Buddhas of soulful parenting. They've broken it down into easily digestible A-Z concepts which promote kindness, compassion, self-reliance, and love. Plus they're both artists, so the stunning photo illustrations are works of art in and of themselves. This book will teach you to stop hovering and worrying and start letting go and enjoying the ride."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
