Diana Nguyen speaks to Bill Wren of McDonald Observatory, whose job is to keep the skies of Far West Texas dark. They discuss Wren’s collaboration with oil and gas companies and municipalities across the region, and what residents can do to help.
Later in the show, Nguyen talks to writer and Marfa Public Radio contributor Rachel Monroe.
They discuss her new book, Savage Appetites, which investigates our cultural fascination with crime and looks at true stories of four women driven by obsession.
There will be a book launch and reading of Savage Appetites at the Crowley Theater on Tuesday, August 20th, at 6 pm.
Monroe’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Texas Monthly, among others.
