Ted Dunagan, author of A Yellow Watermelon, was interviewed recently by Joan Hetzler of Chattanooga, Tennessee’s WAWL radio program The Writers Show, a lively half hour program that airs once a month and entertains listeners through interviews, discussions, readings, drama and stories from writers.

A Yellow Watermelon tells the story of 12-year-old Ted who, while growing up in Alabama in the 1940s, shows enormous courage in befriending a black child and in stepping forward to expose the racist attitudes of the town’s leading citizen.

The Writers Show airs on WAWL 91.5 FM, on Sundays at 1:00 pm in the eastern Tennessee or Northern Georgia listening areas. You can listen online at the WAWL website.

A Yellow Watermelon is available from NewSouth Books,, or your favorite online and retail booksellers.
