A treat for fans of NOW on PBS...

Ah, July 4, Independence Day. But no NOW on PBS this Friday?! Before you launch into angry diatribes about how unpatriotic that is--relax, watch the fireworks and rest assured that next week, we have a special treat for NOW fans.


Join us at the KCTS 9 Studio on Wednesday, July 9 at 7:00 p.m. to meet John Siceloff, renowned journalist and creator of NOW on PBS. He will be here to talk about his new book Your America: Democracy’s Local Heroes that focuses on how everyday people are truly living the American way by creating change in their own communities. Enrique Cerna, host of The New KCTS 9 Connects, will moderate a discussion that will feature Rueben Martinez, recipient of the MacArthur genius grant for his work supporting Latino Literacy; Roberto Maestas, executive director and co-founder of the Seattle-based civil rights organization El Centro de la Raz; and Siceloff.

Tickets are free, but seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served. To reserve your seat, please call 1.800.362.6463.
