Madeline Uraneck, Author

Join author and educator Madeline Uraneck as she speaks with Wisconsin Public Radio talk-show host Larry Meiller about her travels and her 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. From tales of escaping from Tibet on a perilous route over the Himalayas, to striking a balance in America between old traditions and new, to finding ways to bridge cultural divides one gesture at a time, this is a story of immigration, family, and belonging.

Public radio host Larry Meiller has been a talk-show host for more than 30 years, focusing on environmental issues, consumer issues, “how-to” topics, and interviews with Wisconsin authors.
