My Africa Smallpox Memoir Goes on Radio!

KZSB 1290 AM was gracious enough to bring me on to discuss my book and the correlation between COVID and our time in Africa.

It’s been seven years since I started writing about my life in West Africa where my late husband was working to eradicate smallpox. Now the book is a reality—part memoir, part history—and I’m about to send it out into the world. I’m excited to have joined two other local authors in this radio appearance, a great way to introduce Vaccines & Bayonets to the public.

A big thanks to Dr. Elizabeth Stewart for having me on! If you happened to miss the original airing – the show will be re-aired tonight at 8PM PDT, and 11AM PDT Sunday. Please click this link to listen online –
