The occasion was Miller's new book, a memoir called Means of Transit, to be published this fall by the University of Oklahoma Press.
Miller told guest host Susan Page about growing up and becoming a writer in Oklahoma, including her sometimes painful childhood in Tahlequah. She also offered advice for aspiring writers, something she does routinely at OSU Tulsa, where she heads the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers.
Miller, who has a distinct "Southern" accent, was quite charming on the radio, a fact that should serve her and her publisher well.
There's much more about Miller and her book, book signings, and literary links at her website, teresamiller.net.
