Today on Word of Mouth, it’s Writers on a New England Stage with Tom Brokaw, recorded live at The Music Hall in Portsmouth. As a pillar of network news and the author of “The Greatest Generation” books, Brokaw is beloved as an eye-witness to world-shaping events and much more quiet heroics. When diagnosed with incurable cancer in 2013, Brokaw did not want the spotlight turned on him.
In his memoir, A Lucky Life Interrupted Tom Brokaw approaches his diagnosis as a journalist would, and as a husband, father, and friend facing his own mortality.
C-SPAN also broadcast the interview for Book-TV and you can watch it at this link.
Broadcast of our Tom Brokaw event is sponsored by Harvest Capital.
