Premieres Tues., July 3, 8 p.m.
The author of 18 books, a senior contributing editor at Sports Illustrated and a regular contributor to NPR's Morning Edition, Frank Deford has been a working journalist for 50 years, having joined Sports Illustrated out of Princeton in 1962. In a recent talk at the Seattle Central Library, Deford discusses his latest book Over Time: My Life as a Sportswriter – an unconventional tale as wide-ranging as Deford's remarkable career, in which he has chronicled the heroes and the characters of just about every sport in nearly every medium from the 1960s until today.

To celebrate the 4th of July, we've reached into our archives and put together an inspiring block of back-to-back programming featuring Seattle's immigrant communities. Tune in to learn about the contributions of immigrants to American society – from Seattle's growing Somali community and survivors of the Cambodian Killing Fields to the city's grandmother of Mexican food, a Russian folk music composer and a group of Japanese immigrants who started the Seattle Camera Club in the 1920s.
