Frank McCourtIn honor of Frank McCourt, who passed away this past weekend, we are replaying this classic podcast, recorded when he was on tour for Teacher Man.

McCourt became an unlikey star when, at the age of sixty-six, he burst onto the literary scene with Angela’s Ashes, the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir of his childhood in Limerick, Ireland. Teacher Man, his third book, recounted McCourt’s thirty-year teaching career in the New York public schools.

On behalf of everyone at Authors On Tour – Live, Frank McCourt will truly be missed, but his words and passion will live on forever.

This podcast was originally recorded on January 30, 2006. If you’d also like to hear Q&A from the Tattered Cover audience, you can listen to the entire Frank McCourt Podcast.
