Letters of Note: CBC Radio One Interview, November 2016

Posted On: March 30, 2017

Tom Zink was interviewed on CBC Radio One in Sudbury, Ontario, in November 2016 as part of CBC’s “Letters of Note” series. Hosted by Jan Lakes, the series features stories from listeners who had held onto letters they simply couldn’t part with because of the interesting or impactful stories they told. Tom read from letters his father had written about the day Tom’s older brother, Steve, died in 1961, and talked about the impact of Steve’s death on him and his family. Many of the family letters Tom discovered while researching Seasoned: A Memoir of Grief and Grace are woven into the book’s narrative.
