Writer to discuss book on radio show in the ATL
The former college jock who wrote the memoir November Ever After is a featured guest on The Sports Kings radio talk show in Atlanta, Ga. Author Craig T. Greenlee’s live interview is set for today, November 13, at 2:50 p.m. on WAOK-1380 AM, one of the city’s premier news talk radio stations. Robert Calloway and Dean Reid are the show’s co-hosts.
November Ever After is a memoir about Greenlee’s days as a college football player at Marshall University in the late ‘60s/early ‘70s. He played defensive back at MU for two seasons, but left the team for personal reasons after his sophomore year. He did not play football that year, so he was not on the plane.
On November 14, 1970, the Thundering Herd’s chartered plane crashed into the side of a mountain as it attempted to land in bad weather at the airport in Huntington, WVa. Monday marks the 41st anniversary of the tragedy.
“I look forward to providing some perspective on what things were really like during the time of the tragedy,” Greenlee said. “I know that a lot of folks really enjoyed the movie We Are Marshall. But the movie is only an appetizer. By comparison, the memoir I’ve written is more like the full-course meal.”
