Join WWNO and Christwood Retirement Community in Covington on Saturday, June 25 for a live listening and video party of Garrison Keillor's second-to-last episode hosting A Prairie Home Companion, from Tanglewood.

It's hard to believe that Garrison's final show as host of A Prairie Home Companion is now less than a month away — and it's true what they say about time flying!

Join us Thursday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. in the Nims Theatre on the University of New Orleans campus for a special live event — as BBC World Service Newshour host Owen Bennett-Jones and a panel of guests discuss what feminism means in the 21st century.

Newshour Extra is open to the public free of charge, but advance registration is encouraged. Please sign up here. The Nims Theatre is located in the UNO Performing Arts Center, near the center of campus (#28 on this campus map). Free parking is available at nearby lots on campus.
