Frank Tavares: The Writer Behind NPR's Best Known Voice

His name is Frank Tavares--a professor at Southern Connecticut State University and a fiction writer who has just published "The Man Who Built Boxes and other stories" (Bacon Press Books, 2013).
In a recent conversation, Tavares spoke with WABE's Steve Goss about his long career at NPR and his news book.
