KERA listeners are no doubt familiar with the This I Believe series of personal essays that airs on the station (90.1 FM — but you knew that, right?). Now’s your chance to meet the man who brings those essays to you.
Jay Allison, host of This I Believe, will make an appearance at Legacy Books this Sunday at 2 p.m. to promote This I Believe II: More Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women. The book is a collection of some of the best essays from the show and includes writings from regular folks like a nun, an Iraq War veteran and a waitress and more high-profile writers, like Austin singer-songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore.
Coming on the heels of fellow NPR contributor and StoryCorps founder Dave Isay’s recent appearance in Plano, North Texas ought to be good and inspired this month.
