Lit House Director on the BBC
Professor of poetry, author and Literary House Director, Mark Nowak appeared on BBC America’s World News program last night to discuss the current mining disasters in West Virginia and China. Mark, who writes extensively about mines and their employees via his book and blog, Coal Mountain Elementary, was a natural fit for the news segment since he literally calls our attention to yet another mine tragedy from around the globe on a daily basis.

On a personal level, it was extremely surreal watching Mark on the very familiar BBC set that I see every morning and many evenings. Even more unusual to hear him speaking with Matt Frei on our television.
