Fresno Journalist Embraces The Azores In New Memoir

Jul 31, 2018

Fresno readers likely know the name Diana Marcum from seeing her byline in the Fresno Bee. During her tenure there, her longform journalism brought insight into people’s lives with the narrative quality rarely found in newsprint. As her career took her to the LA Times, Marcum won a Pultizer for her coverage of California’s great drought. Now she’s telling her own story, and that of the people of the Azores – in a new memoir - The Tenth Island: Finding Joy, Beauty, and Unexpected Love in the Azores. She joined us on Valley Edition to talk about what inspired this new book.
