The Bookshelf: Granny D: You're Never Too Old - Episodes 7 & 8

Granny D: Part 8

  Susan Creed reads Granny D. You're Never Too Old to Raise a Little Hell, by Doris Haddock and Dennis Michael Burke. Published by Villard Books in 2003.

A ninety-year-old activist from New Hampshire chronicles her fourteen-month walk across the country to raise awareness of the issue of campaign finance reform, and describes her lifelong commitment to activism and adventure.

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.
