MY Story on the Moth Radio Hour

Thanks to all who tuned in this past week to hear my story “Finding YiaYia: A Greek Tragedy,” on The Moth Radio Hour. 

 If you missed it on the radio, you can listen on demand here at your leisure. I am one of 4 storytellers on the broadcast. My intro and segment begins at 20:00 and ends at 35:00 with a mention of my support of My Sisters’ Place, NY, a not-for-profit organization that provides housing and other vital services to victims of domestic violence.

I hope you will please consider a donation to in memory of my grandmother, Maria Anastasiou Derecas.
