Kelly Grey Carlisle Knows Her Mother Was Thinking Of Her

Elena Souris

Kelly Grey Carlisle is a professor of writing at Trinity University. Her memoir "We are All Shipwrecks" will be released next year.

When we think about the white marble of the ivory tower, it is hard to believe the stories of the people who work there might have tread on the shag of a cheap motel carpet. 

Kelly tells us one such story. A story that changed her whole life.

The following track was recorded at the November 1, 2016 Worth Repeating with the theme "Dark Was The Night." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
