Tonight the PBS NewsHour will air a segment about my new book Have Dog, Will TravelThe piece features an interview with Jeffrey Brown whose reporting on literature and poetry is well known to book lovers across the nation. Jeffrey is also a poet whose first collection The News is available from Copper Canyon Press. In our time together we talked about poetry, civil rights, disability culture, dogs for the blind, the field of disability studies, and the power of literature to bring people together around social justice movements. And yes, there’s a lovely dog, Caitlyn, a sweetie pie yellow Labrador from Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

The program airs locally, in Syracuse at 7 PM. Check your local listings.

  1. Just finished “Have Dog Will Travel” and was really moved – I felt as though I were invited to join you in a wonderfully personal journey – thanks for a wonderful read…and introducing me to an equally wonderful canine 🙂

  2. Dear Sir… I just finished the audiobook version of Have Dog Will Travel. I became legally blind as an adult. I’ve been using a white cane for about ten years. Your words are very helpful, thoughtful, and kind. Thank you.
