Collection Development, Featured Titles Hear Tom Brokaw’s Inspiring Story About Beating Cancer in This Summer Drop-In

Don’t miss this new Summer CD drop-in from American television journalist and award-winning author of The Greatest Generation, Tom Brokaw.

Drawing on a journal he kept during his year of battling multiple myeloma, a bone marrow cancer, A LUCKY LIFE INTERRUPTED is Brokaw’s moving memoir, with reflections on his medical quest, the life lessons learned, and news events he covered for NBC during that time.

When Brokaw was diagnosed in 2013, he found comfort in reading literature and poetry, and was especially encouraged by former U.S. Poet Laureate Donald Hall’s poem, “Her Garden.” Brokaw wrote to Hall about the poem, spawning a friendship through letter correspondence. When Brokaw and bestselling author Anne Patchett crossed paths later on, they too began a literary friendship via letter writing. And now, by sharing this deeply personal memoir with the world, Brokaw aims to create a meaningful connection with all who hear it.
