Interview: How a Pandemic Affected Adriana Trigiani's Life and Writing

Author Adriana Trigiani was in Knoxville to read from and sign her latest book, The Good Left Undone, at the East Tennessee History Center. Trigiani spoke with WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper about how the COVID-19 pandemic affected her life and her writing and about how it feels to get back to touring and promoting her books, in person.

Chrissy served as WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue from late 2021 to early 2023. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She had previously been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally filled in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
