From the Studio: After Hours at the Library


The Spokane Country Library District is holding a reading and membership event "After Hours at the Library" on Friday, November 4 from 7-9pm at the North Spokane Library.  The free event featuring local writers and poets is a chance to learn about the Friends of the Spokane County Library District and the programs they support.  This morning, Jake Baker, Communications & Development Director for SCLD, author Sharma Shields, and guitarist John Paul Shields stopped by the studio to talk to Verne about "After Hours at the Library" and to share a preview of the entertainment.  More information available from Friends of the Spokane County Library District.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
