The Library on WMUK-2

Weekdays at noon

It’s been made into three different movies and a Broadway musical, but none of those tell the full story of “Show Boat”, a novel by Kalamazoo-born Edna Ferber. Ms. Ferber imparts life into her characters and settings with the vividness of her descriptions. Enjoy a style of prose not usually heard today as Mark Tomlonson reads this iconic American novel of life on the river, Monday through Friday on WMUK-2.

Starting September 28: "It Can't Happen Here" by Sinclair Lewis

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.
