Ken Budd will talk about volunteering, grief, change, and leaving your comfort zone in an often funny, often poignant interview with C-SPAN2’s Book TV on Saturday, November 10, at 5:30 pm EST. The interview, which was taped at George Mason University’s Fall for the Book festival (see photo, with Book TV’s Peter Slen), covers Ken’s volunteer experiences in New Orleans, Costa Rica, China, Ecuador, the West Bank, and Kenya.
