NPR Crowds Torn Between Pledge Drives and David Sedaris Book Release


This week is going to test the time management skills of public radio fans as they attempt to volunteer to raise money for their local stations, as well as read the new book from This American Life contributor, David Sedaris at the same time. The release of Sedaris’ new book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, couldn’t have come at a worse time for NPR affiliates who are counting on their loyal listeners to be completely devoted to their spring fund drive. Now, there’s a real likelihood that volunteers won’t be completely focused on taking pledges and will instead be riveted to the new Sedaris book. If stations don’t reach their fundraising goals, it will be clear who is to blame.
