Sunday, September 22nd at 3 p.m., actress and author Evelyn Hinds performs her one-woman show portraying Corrie ten Boom at Paducah's Luther T. Carson Center.  Ten Boom and her family defied the Nazis in her native Netherlands to save Jews from persecution and deportation to concentration camps.  Todd Hatton speaks with Hinds about her show and the remarkable woman who inspired it.

Todd Hatton hails from Paducah, Kentucky, where he got into radio under the auspices of the late, great John Stewart of WKYX while a student at Paducah Community College. He also worked at WKMS in the reel-to-reel tape days of the early 1990s before running off first to San Francisco, then Orlando in search of something to do when he grew up. He received his MFA in Creative Writing at Murray State University. He vigorously resists adulthood and watches his wife, Angela Hatton, save the world one plastic bottle at a time.
