Emily Rapp on NPR!
We're so very proud of our girl, Emily Rapp, for all of the gorgeous writing that she's produced under very sad circumstances: her son, Ronan's, diagnosis with Tay Sachs Disease--a terminal illness.
Most recently, she wrote this piece in the New York Times. And this week, she talked about the article, and her experience parenting Ronan and writing his story, on NPR's Talk of the Nation.
Emily talks with NPR correspondent Brian Naylor; they are joined by a nurse who works with terminally ill children, and take calls from parents who have faced similar circumstances.
You can find audio from the interview here. It's very moving, well worth the listen.
Emily will be teaching a weekend workshop in memoir at this year's conference: click here for more info on that.
Congratulations again, Emily.
