Your Call: Another day in the death of America


On the October 4th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the Guardian columnist Gary Younge about his new book Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives.

On an average day in the United States, seven children and teens are shot and killed by guns. Gary Younge argues that these everyday fatalities are simply a banal fact of death. He tells the stories of young people who were killed on November 23, 2013. Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with Rose Aguilar and you.
