Please join KLRU as Evan Smith and Pulitzer-winning author Lawrence Wright record an episode of Overheard with Evan Smith on Wednesday, January 12, at 1:15 p.m.
Wright has built successful careers as an author, playwright, screenwriter and journalist, tackling an astonishing range of subjects for a huge range of media. He’s probably best known for giving us a window into Al-Qaeda through The Looming Tower, followed by his one-man play based on his research for that book and an HBO documentary about that journey. Learn about his work and his next project, an in-depth look at Scientology through a former high-level member.
Overheard with Evan Smith updates the successful formula of our award-winning series Texas Monthly Talks -- great conversation with fascinating people, always on the news and always with a sense of humor. The new show brings you the same mix of guests from politics, the arts, literature, journalism, business, sports and more, and is being offered to PBS stations nationwide.
