Good Summer Reading on August 15 DIALOGUE

— Airs Friday, August 15, at 7:30 p.m. MT/PT
— Repeats Sunday, August 17, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT

The August 15 episode of DIALOGUE features an encore presentation of “Good Summer Reading.” The program, which airs at 7:30 p.m. and repeats Sunday, August 17, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT, focuses on the work of authors Mike Medberry of Boise and Jo Deurbrouck of Idaho Falls, who also give their picks for good summer reads.

Medberry has penned a memoir titled On the Dark Side of the Moon: A Journey to Recovery, about his 2000 stroke while visiting the Craters of the Moon National Monument. Medberry, who lay near death for several hours until he was rescued, interweaves the story of his recovery with his love for the harsh yet beautiful area, and his longstanding efforts to help secure an expansion of the area's monument designation, which happened later in 2000.

Deurbrouck's book, Anything Worth Doing, is an ode to Idaho whitewater raft guides Clancy Reece and Jon Barker. Reece died in 1996 during an attempt to set a speed record in a dory on the Salmon River, and Deurbrouck, a river rafter herself, was drawn to his story of both freedom and risk. The book won a National Outdoor Book Award in 2012 in the History/Biography category.
