Please join me...

... for a tour through some places my writing has brought me over the years: toy companies, the halls of Congress, Newport mansions, NASCAR, operating rooms galore, animal-experimentation labs, old TB sanatoriums, etc. The people, of course, are what has made these many journeys so interesting. The program is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012, I will be speaking at the Warwick Public Library. The PowerPoint slides will nicely illustrate my talk. For the first time in public, I will also read from the novel I have been writing, and am still writing (and writing and writing).

It's official: On Monday, March 26, at 8 p.m., Rhode Island PBS will broadcast The Providence Journal's first feature-length documentary, "The War on Terror: Coming Home." The broadcast will be followed by a live, an in-studio panel discussion, which I will moderate. PBS will broadcast the nearly hour-long documentary again several times that week, both in primetime and in off-hours, as well as several times later in the year. This is a great public service by by both my newspaper and PBS, and I am honored to be a part of it.
