The Keepers

(Rochester, NY) – From The Kitchen Sisters and PRX with host, Academy Award-winning actress Frances McDormand comes The Keepers, airing Tuesday, December 24, 2019 at 12 p.m. and again at 9 p.m. on AM 1370. The two-hour special shares striking and surprising stories of preservation and civic life. There are stories of activist archivists, rogue librarians, curators, collectors and historians. There are guardians of history, large and small. Protectors of the free flow of information and ideas. Keepers of the culture and the collections they keep.
