Evergreen Radio Reading Service is part of Washington Talking Book and Braille Library, and broadcasts live talk shows, radio dramas, and news stories read aloud for the blind and visually impaired throughout Washington State. Listeners tune in through special receivers checked out from the library or the library's new webstreaming service.
Craig Johnson, Lead Broadcaster for Evergreen, said that the station has two long running literary programs. "Literary News is an author interview program and Publications Northwest focuses on regional works. Obviously our listeners are very interested in all things about publishing and bookselling," he said in a recent e-mail.
