I will be chatting with Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix about my new book, "Haunted Prague," on "NSO Showcase" with the National Symphony Orchestra, Wednesday, January 8th and 9:00 PM EST. The program features the music of Czech great Antonin Dvorak, and Nicole will be talking to me about chilling Czech legends, intriguing Czech history, and the supernatural stories contained in "Haunted Prague." It promises to be a "hauntingly" good time! You can tune in on 90.9 FM, online at classicalweta.org, or on the Classical WETA app.
