Karen Chase chronicles her childhood with polio and talks about the 1950s polio outbreak in the U.S. as part of her memoir, Polio Boulevard. Her book comes during the same year the nation marked the 60th anniversary of Dr. Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with Chase about her book and kinship with Franklin Roosevelt.

Karen Chase will be at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum Thursday, November 6 at 7 p.m. for a book talk and signing. She also speaks at Sheffield Local Authors Day on November 15.
