Sarah Vowell is set to join us in Huntsville at the Von Braun Center on Sunday evening, for a show to benefit Huntsville Public Radio. Vowell's most recent book, 'Lafayette in the Somewhat United States,' recounts much of the American Revolution, and the role of that young French nobleman in the Americans' military success. WLRH host Shane Scott recently spoke by phone with the historian, author, and sometimes actor. You can stream or download the extended version of that interview here. Tickets for the Sunday evening event are available through the Ticketmaster website, and may also be obtained by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
