To celebrate the life of John Egerton, who died unexpectedly last week, we will dedicate an entire week of A Word on Words on NPT2 to Mr. Egerton’s appearances. 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 Dissent, Nashville: 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.
