Topeka author Tom Averill Honored by Cowboy Museum

This weekend, Washburn University Writer-in-Residence Thomas Fox Averill will be honored by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Averill's latest novel, rode, was named the Outstanding  Western Novel of 2011. This week on KPR Presents, Kaye McIntyre visits with Averill about rode, which is based on an old Jimmy Driftwood ballad, "Tennessee Stud."  We'll also hear from Lewis Lapham, editor of "Lapham's Quarterly," an eclectic collection of essays, fiction, non-fiction, illustrations, and poetry.
