Premiere Press

Premiere Press — The Day Carl Sandburg Died

We were delighted to see The Day Carl Sandburg Died open to great reviews and national press back in September. Tom Brinkmoeller from TV Worth Watching explored the many facets of Sandburg in his piece while the New York Daily News gave the film four out of five stars, plus other mentions in the Mountain Xpress, Galesburg Register-Mail, The State Journal Register and more. In radio and television, Paul was interviewed by Bob Edwards on his Sirius XM show and featured as "Person of the Week" on Asheville's WLOS-TV. Thanks for all the support! If you're interested in the film please head over to Shop PBS and pick up a copy.
