Dear Open to Hope Friends:
I wanted to let you know that my first book, FATHERLOSS, has been turned into a PBS special!
The half-hour program will premiere this Saturday, June 20, at 8 p.m. in Kentucky only. It will then be marketed to PBS stations around the country to air before Father’s Day 2010.
The PBS producer, Dave Shuffett, does an outstanding job capturing the emotions that sons experience following the death of a father. In the show, he tells his own powerful father-loss story. Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Joel Pett also shares his story of father-loss in the video.
If you do not live in Kentucky, and would like a copy of the video before it airs in your area, you can order the video on my website ( www.neilchethik.com ). If you’d like to help bring the show to your PBS station, please e-mail me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll let you know how to help.
Finally, if you are on Facebook and we are not connected there yet, please friend me!
Here’s the schedule for the show in Kentucky
Saturday, June 20, at 8 pm Eastern on KET1
Sunday, June 21, at 4:30 pm Eastern on KET1
Sunday, June 21, at 7 pm Eastern on KET2
