The shows will air at 3:30 p.m. on NPT2 from Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 6. In these episodes, Mr. Egerton and host John Seigenthaler discuss Egerton’s books Where We Stand: Voices of Southern DissentNashville: An American Self-Portrait and more.

NPT2 is available over-the-air on 8.2, on Comcast Channel 241 and Charter Cable channel 191.

For more on Egerton, we recommend Margaret Renkl’s beautiful tribute at Chapter 16.

I can’t get any of the channels mentioned here. Is there any other way to view these? Will they be available at the library?
