Kids Writers Contest ~ Drought Update ~ "Val" Review ~ Mothers' Day History
Friday, May 6, 2022 - The annual PBS Kids Writers Contest is always a source of delight here at Prairie Public. We love sharing some of those stories, and joining us to do just that is Christine McClellan. ~~~ Drought is still affecting much of the Great Plains, as we hear from Harvest Public Media’s Elizabeth Rembert. ~~~ Matt Olien reviews “Val,” a documentary about the life and career of Val Kilmer, using archival footage often shot by Kilmer himself over the course of his career. ~~~ Mothers Day is coming up on Sunday. Did you ever wonder how it got started? We get the story from Nate DiMeo, host of the Memory Palace.
