Tidings from Hazel Kahan
Exactly a year ago, on March 10th, the day the pandemic was made official, I returned from a very special, very personal three-week visit to Lahore, the town of my birth. I think of it as a coda, closing a circle, a swan song to a journey I want to share. (First broadcast on WPKN radio, April 29, 2020 and produced by Tony Ernst.)
