Radio Bookclub: Laura Pritchett — Playing with (Wild) Fire

The March selection for the Radio Bookclub is Playing with (Wild) Fire by Laura Pritchett. This collection of short stories was inspired by the 2020 Cameron Peak Fire.

The book tells the story of a mountain community that is impacted by a wildfire, and explores themes of resillience, community, food insecurity and more.

This show was taped in front of a live audience at the Boulder Bookstore on March 7, 2024.

This episode was broadcast on KGNU on Thursday March 22nd at 9.00am.
