KRFY Radio Hosts Marilynne Robinson and Reclaim Idaho organizer Luke Mayville

This morning I had the honor of joining the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and Sandpoint native Marilynne Robinson to pre-record an interview on Idaho's neglected tradition of strong public schools, and how we can reclaim that tradition. The interview will air tomorrow at 8:00am on KRFY's Morning Show. Big thanks to Chris Bessler and Suzy Prez at KRFY!

If you're in North Idaho, don't forget to visit and buy your ticket for our event with Marilynne Robinson tomorrow at 7pm. If you'd like to host a house party and view the event from home, we'll be streaming at
