The Library on WMUK-2

Weekdays at noon

Concluding Wednesday: In the midst of a world-wide depression, Italy and Germany turned to Fascism for relief. Would the United States do the same? Sinclair Lewis explores that question in his surprisingly contemporary 1935 novel “It Can’t Happen Here”. Join reader Mark Tomlonson Monday through Friday at noon for this compelling and chilling work.

For Thanksgiving Day: What would Thanksgiving Day be without parades? This Thanksgiving on “The Library” Jean Shepherd describes marching in a high school band behind a drum major Mr. Shepherd describes as “Captain Queeg”. Hear all about a legendary Thanksgiving Day parade in Hohman, Indiana in “Wilbur Duckworth and His Magic Baton” at noon on WMUK-2.

Beginning Friday: An inheritance stolen from a fair maiden, a locked-room murder, the dark streets of London, trouble abroad in the great Empire –  you should have no trouble deducing this is a Sherlock Holmes story. Join reader Mark Tomlonson Monday through Friday at noon for “The Sign of Four” on WMUK-2.
