The first phase of the WUWM 2020 Capital Campaign was a success and resulted in relocating to the new facility, hiring of Environmental News Producer Susan Bence and upgrading station equipment.

Now, we are embarking on the next phase of the campaign and need your support to build out the final two broadcast studios, create another specialized reporting position and grow the endowment fund.

NPR'S BACKSEAT BOOK CLUB
Book Club   PlayChildren's Book Club
NPR's Backseat Book Club, hosted by Michele Norris, is a special All Things Considered segment aimed at young people and parents looking for quality books to share with their kids. The book club encourages engagement with children - the kids who listen in their parents' cars or kitchens while doing their homework.
Every month, Michele picks a book and asks the young listeners to read it and submit questions. At the end of the month, Michele will talk with the author and ask the submitted questions. January's book is The Watsons Go To Birmingham - 1963.
