On the next Fresh Air, Terry talks with Michael Arcenaux, author of the new collection of personal essays I Don’t Want to Die Poor. The title is a reference to the student loan debt that he’s still paying off, 13 years after graduating from Howard University. His first book, I Can’t Date Jesus, was about growing up black, Catholic, and gay in Houston. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
