Colin Discusses 'The Memory Thief' on 'N.C. Bookwatch'
Author Emily Colin will discuss her book "The Memory Thief" with host D.G. Martin on "North Carolina Bookwatch" at noon today (Sunday, Jan. 20) on UNC-TV.
Although a young woman begs her mountain-climbing husband not to take on Mount McKinley in Alaska, he goes anyway, promising, "I will come back to you."
But, as she feared, he falls to his death. Still, that promise to return is haunting. Learning how it is fulfilled is the backbone of Colin's "The Memory Thief." The action moves from Wilmington to the Swiss Alps, Colorado, Chapel Hill, and the Wildacres Retreat in the North Carolina mountains.
An encore airs Thursday, Jan. 24, at 5 p.m.
"Bookwatch Classics" (programs from earlier years) airs Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. on UNC-MX, a digital cable system channel (Time Warner No. 172 or No. 4.4).
A grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council provides crucial support for North Carolina Bookwatch.
