Our September SpeakEasy Features Sonari Glinton... And You
September 26, 2013
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Chickie Wah Wah, 2828 Canal St.
We’ve convinced NPR's Sonari Glinton that he needs to spend an evening with us while he is visiting Louisiana.
Eve Troeh hosts WWNO’s SpeakEasy this month and will moderate the conversation but, as always, you are encouraged to join in. This time, we'll explore a day in the life of an NPR reporter.
Sonari is a NPR National Desk reporter based at the NPR West bureau, primarily covering the auto industry and transportation. He focuses on the business of cars as well as the economy and the business climate of the Detroit area and the industrial Midwest. His public radio journey to NPR’s National Desk began with an internship at member station WBEZ in Chicago. He went on to produce and report for WBEZ. While in Chicago he focused on juvenile justice and the Cook County Board of Commissioners.
If you didn’t click on the link above attached to Sonari’s name, I encourage you to do so now. You will find “proof that not everything in Detroit is in ruins.”
Meet Sonari, Eve, WWNO staff members and many WWNO listeners on Thursday, September 26 at Chickie Wah Wah. The conversation is good, the food is good and the bartenders are good — it’s all good at SpeakEasy!
