Valley Public Radio To Broadcast Series Of Saroyan Short Stories With Mark Arax
In a brand new special series from Valley Public Radio, award-winning journalist and author Mark Arax offers a special perspective on our times, viewed through the lens of writer William Saroyan.
Each week, Valley writers will read a short story by Saroyan, and we’ll discuss its relevance.
As Mark Arax writes: “Saroyan’s voice is a perfect one for our time--the time of coronavirus. The urban roar has become a whisper. Everything has been reduced to the elemental. We live each day for a moment—the deep breath of a hike, the feel of the sun, the taste of a meal we have cooked ourself. We’ve returned to Saroyan time.”
Join us Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. for The Time of Our Life, beginning April 30, 2020.
