Morning host Kai Brito will interview Madeline and one of her “adopted family” members on the lively Eight O’Clock Buzz on WORT-FM Community Radio, 89.9 FM, about Uraneck’s new book, How to Make a Life: A Tibetan Refugee Family and the Midwestern Woman They Adopted.
An evocative blend of immersion journalism and memoir, How to Make a Life shares the story of a Tibetan refugee family making a life in Madison. This is a thought-provoking story of a Wisconsin woman who got involved in an in-depth, multi-year relationship with an immigrant family, discovering how much the interaction contributed to her own growing sense of the world.
Several free copies of How to Make a Life: A Tibetan American Family and the Midwestern Woman They Adopted will be given away to lucky callers, in celebration of WORT’S Pledge Drive. Listen live or stream it!
