Join us on Thursday, June 4 at 2pm ET/11am PT for Trailblazing Women for Kids (Ages 7-13), a talk with Suzanne Slade (Author) and Cozbi Cabrera (Illustrator) about "Exquisite: The Poetry and Life of Gwendolyn Brooks." The conversation will be moderator by PBS Chicago's Tim Russell, VP of Community Engagement.
Trailblazing Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000) was the First African American to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1950 for her outstanding poetry. From Chicago, Gwendolyn wrote about "real life" from a young age.
Suzanne Slade (Author) and Cozbi Cabrera (Illustrator) teamed up in "Exquisite: The Poetry and Life of Gwendolyn Brooks" (released in April 2020) to explore Gwendolyn's amazing path and poetry, as well as the intersections of race, gender, and the ubiquitous poverty of the Great Depression.
During this virtual engagement, you will hear the read-aloud of the book, learn about the surprising 5+ year research process (primary source research) in a fun and relatable way, and have the opportunity to investigate the author/illustrator's collaboration and inspiration in this fabulous children's book about this iconic woman.

Speaking Grief | Public Media Documentary and Awareness Initative

At some point, the experience of loss and bereavement is one that we all have to endure, but too often it is one that we have to endure alone. SPEAKING GRIEF aims to change the way people think about how they experience their own grief and how they support the people in their life that are going through it.

WSKG will air SPEAKING GRIEF on 6/8 at 9pm.

Speaking Grief is a public media initiative aimed at creating a more grief-aware society by validating the experience of grievers and helping to guide those who wish to support them.

Lidia’s Kitchen – Classic Pesto

Day 14 of Lidia’s #pantryrecipes - Pasta with Classic Pesto: “Pesto is easy to make, and it has a freshness of flavor that people love. This recipe calls for basil, but you can make pesto out of other herbs and vegetables that you have on hand. If you don’t have pine nuts, try another nut. You can also freeze pesto and add it to a pasta sauce or soup for a burst of fresh flavor.”

Day 13 of Lidia’s #pantryrecipes - Crepes with Chocolate and Walnuts: “When you find flour in the supermarket, make crepes! We called them palacinke, and my mother whipped them up for dinner and served them also as dessert or breakfast with a sprinkle of sugar or jam. The chocolate and walnut version is more decadent, but feel free to make them your own.”

Lidia’s Kitchen – Risotto with Vegetables

Day 11 of Lidia’s #pantryrecipes - Risotto with Vegetables: “Rice is another staple to use during these times, and I grew up eating more rice and polenta than pasta. Make this dish your own - use any vegetable you find at the supermarket or even frozen vegetables. It’s also a wonderful way to use leftover vegetables that you might have in the refrigerator or freezer.”

Fauci Voices Cautious Optimism About Moderna Vaccine, Calling Trial 'Quite Promising'

"Fauci said full results would be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, most likely within a few weeks. If all goes according to plan, Fauci said it is possible that a vaccine could be available within a matter of months — a timeline that would shatter the years-long process typically required to produce a vaccine."

Dr. Anthony Fauci says it's "conceivable" a coronavirus vaccine could be ready within months but cautions "when you're dealing with vaccines, there could be so many things that get in the way."

Could someone PLEASE give me an update on when you think your New Transmitter will be functioning properly. I have sent Numerous emails and made phone calls over the last several days with ZERO response.
WSKG.org
I want to say Thank You, I have moved and I miss the particular programing of this station. Thanks to NPR One, and iHeart Radio, I am able to keep what's important to me. Been listening for 3 generations, than you, from people like me.
Hallo from west Wales UK. I've picked up your station on radio.garden, it's mid afternoon here, I'm in my farmhouse in self isolation listening live to your show. I just want to say how much I'm enjoying it, good live chat, informative and always refresing to hear views from another country. Stay well, best wishes. Carol.
wait all week for Sat ams to learn how to do stuff.all the programming you have now is insuring good rarings for Hallmark and FOX,miss those guys
do not send these people money for wskg passport! it is a scam to take your money! and when you call to cancel you get disconnected! and they lie in their emails to you regarding the pbs app for wskg passport and tell you to call the station that does not take your call, you get put on hold, then they hang up!
do not fall for wskg and contribute via a credit card! the cancellation hassle is nothing but corrupt activity by them, you get cut off when you call, and they send you emails saying they cannot do anything and you have to contact wskg directly, and you get nowhere! also, the pbs app that they charge you for is a SCAM!! it is just to get money from you, and after you do everything they tell you through pbs.org the app still does not work and they lie saying the app for pbs is not specific to wskg, and yet, it says "wskg passport required" and after you pay for it, you are out the money!
I know they’re aware of it, and working on it, which I appreciate. But the issues with WSKG pixelating and skipping on DISH TV is really ruining the viewing experience for a lot of our favorite shows.
Any estimate for when WSKG News radio will be back on the air?
I would like to suggest to PBS TV to look into developing a cartoon series based on the radio series "Chickenman" which was on radio in the late 60s. I thought of that after watching the "Wordgirl" series
