Author John Price and Paula Poundstone

Apr 1, 2012

Grounded in place, in the great grasslands of the Midwest, John Price's large-hearted memoir Man Killed by Pheasant and Other Kinships is the thread that runs throughout. It features creatures running through his back yard and in the wild, with Swedish ancestors, with neighbors, with the Midwestern prairies, all surrounded by his wife and children. John joins Charity to talk about the book. Later, comedian Paula Poundstone talks about her upcoming show at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines. Poundstone is one of the panelists on NPR's Wait Wait....Don't Tell Me.
