BFRT: The Undaunted Women of Nanking - Episode 1 (7/22/21)

This week on Blanket Fort Radio Theater we debut the new podcast "The Undaunted Women of Nanking: The Wartime Diaries of Minnie Vautrin and Tsen Shui-fang" from SIU Press. In this first episode we learn about Illinois native Minnie Vautrin and Tsen Shui-fang as they provide shelter to thousands of women and children in the aftermath of the 1937 Japanese occupation of Nanking, China.

Blanket Fort Radio Theater is a storytelling initiative of SIU Press in collaboration with the SIU Creative Writing Program and WSIU Radio.
