Update - November 20, 2013

With regret, MTPR is cancelling the “Evening with Montana Public Radio” event scheduled for this Sunday, November 24th at the Wilma Theater in Missoula.

Our featured headliner, NPR’s Susan Stamberg, is unexpectedly unable to travel to Missoula this weekend.  Ms. Stamberg is very disappointed and has asked that we let all the MTPR listeners know that she really wishes she could be here. She sends her best wishes for the station and all MTPR supporters.

A film based on Missoula author Pete Fromm's  novel "As Cool As I am" debuted recently in Missoula. It's a coming-of-age tale about a teenage girl, played by up-and-coming Irish actress Sarah Bolger. The star of the hit TV series "Homeland", Claire Danes, plays the girl's mother.

In this feature interview, Fromm talks with News Director Sally Mauk about the novel - and the film of the same title. Fromm says the novel grew out of a short story he wrote called "The Gravy on the Cake".
