The Takeaway launched the U.S. release of Lawrence Hill’s new book, BLOOD: THE STUFF OF LIFE (House of Anansi, October 26, 2013), on Monday, October 28th. Hill’s new work is a riveting nonfiction account of the historical and contemporary importance of blood, as a bold and enduring determinant of identity, gender, race, culture, citizenship, belonging, privilege, deprivation, athletic superiority, and nationhood.

The Takeaway is a national morning news program that delivers news and analysis listeners need to catch up, start their day, and prepare for what’s ahead. Host John Hockenberry, along with the The New York Times and WGBH Boston, invites listeners every morning to learn more and be part of the American conversation on-air and online at thetakeaway.org. The Takeaway is a unique partnership of global news leaders. It is a co-production of PRI (Public Radio International) and WNYC Radio in collaboration with The New York Times and WGBH Boston.
