Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome journalist and author Lisa Napoli to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating her new book, Susan, Linda, Nina, & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR on Thursday, July 22nd at 6pm MT. She'll be interviewed by Erin O'Toole of KUNC! The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free. We have a limited number of sigend book plates available for those who purchase the book! 

Susan, Linda, Nina, and Cokie is journalist Lisa Napoli’s captivating account of these four women, their deep and enduring friendships, and the trail they blazed to becoming icons. They had radically different stories. Cokie Roberts was born into a political dynasty, roamed the halls of Congress as a child, and felt a tug toward public service. Susan Stamberg, who had lived in India with her husband who worked for the State Department, was the first woman to anchor a nightly news program and pressed for accommodations to balance work and home life. Linda Wertheimer, the daughter of shopkeepers in New Mexico, fought her way to a scholarship and a spot on-air. And Nina Totenberg, the network's legal affairs correspondent, invented a new way to cover the Supreme Court. Based on extensive interviews and calling on the author’s deep connections in news and public radio, Susan, Linda, Nina, and Cokie will be as beguiling and sharp as its formidable subjects.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
