About the Hosts

“A good book is an event in [one’s] life.” —Stendhal

With Listening to Literature we aim to share our love of literature, writ large, with the Savannah community and beyond. Join us on Fridays, 12:05 p.m.

Leigh E. Rich

In Hamburg (2012), à la John Lennon’s album “Rock ’n’ Roll”

In the vein of Anton Chekhov, Leigh E. Rich has followed two passions in life: literature and medicine.

A longtime “culture critic,” she is an award-winning writer of editorials, news and feature stories, and reviews, and she has experience as a staff and free-lance journalist for multiple publications in the United States.

She also holds a doctorate in Health and Behavioral Sciences and a master’s degree in Cultural and Medical Anthropology and has worked or studied in Australia, Denmark, Italy, Russia, and Switzerland.

A professor of Health Administration, she teaches courses in bioethics, health law and policy, and social theory.

Catch her on Fridays at 12:05 p.m. for Listening to Literature and also at 11 a.m. when she co-hosts Beyond the Liner Notes and Saturdays at 10 a.m. as a guest co-host on Health Care Ethics.
