AGT Weekly Radio Show - Sunday Mornings @ 8:35 a.m.

The Authors Page, a production of AGT and WUOT, is a weekly segment airing on Sunday mornings at 8:35 a.m., hosted by AGT member and award-winning author/artist Jody Sims. Each week, Jody shares the back-story of a famous (or sometimes not-so-well known) author who is from Tennessee, or who has written about Tennessee. Encouraging the development of higher literacy is an important component of AGT’s mission. The Authors Page is just one way AGT is able to enhance the reading experience by getting to know authors more personally, discovering details about their books, and often finding inspiration through their challenges or successes.
