Public radio listeners, tune in to WBUR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook on Friday to hear me talking about small-town life and The Little Way Of Ruthie Leming. I’ll be away from the keys most of Friday, in New Orleans doing this interview, after which I’m going to zip over to Loyola to meet with the Walker Percy Center folks, and then hightailing it back to the country, I hope in time to catch the newspaper reporter coming to town to do a piece on our country mission church, St. John the Theologian.

Busy Friday! Listen to the broadcast and tell me what you think.
