My author interview with Shirley Showalter airs December 31, 2013, on WMUK 102.1 FM radio, Kalamazoo, Michigan's NPR affiliate station. We talk about Shirley's new book, Blush, and what it means to grow up in the Mennonite community. You can listen to the radio station tomorrow live (beginning at 7:50 a.m.), or click on "Listen" mid-page to hear the full interview.
As a young girl, Shirley Showalter never thought she would go to college, let alone become president of Goshen College in Indiana. Showalter grew up as a Mennonite in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
