Dr. William â€œBillâ€ Bass, founder of the â€œBody Farmâ€ at the University of Tennessee, and radio personality Frank Murphy have appeared together many times since Murphy began interviewing the renowned forensic anthropologist each time a new Jefferson Bass novel was published.
â€œIâ€™ve worked on four different radio stations in Knoxville and have interviewed him on all four,â€ said Murphy, afternoon show host on Classic Hits 93.1 WNOX.
Bass and Murphy will appear together again on Saturday, September 28, at the Childrenâ€™s Museum of Oak Ridge as Bass discusses the science behind the Jefferson Bass novel â€œBones of Betrayal,â€ a collaboration between Bass and co-author Jon Jefferson. Set in Oak Ridge, the novel explores the murder of a physicist, involved in the Manhattan Project race to build the bomb, whose body is discovered in a frozen swimming pool.
Bass will speak at 7 p.m., and Murphy will emcee the benefit presentation hosted by the Childrenâ€™s Museum at 461 West Outer Drive. An earlier VIP reception begins at 5:45 p.m. Food may be purchased from Lanai Food Truck and Razzleberry’s CafÃ©, and beverages, including beer, wine, water, and soda, may also be purchased. Doors open at 5:30pm. [Read more…]
