An essay by a USA Weekend reader will be featured Monday on National Public Radio’s weekly “This I Believe” series.
The essayist — who wrote about the importance of her life compared to the life of a tree — is retired elementary school teacher Ruth Kamps of Wisconsin. She submitted the piece after reading about “This I Believe” in USA Weekend, which is the national print partner for the NPR series and encourages readers to submit entries to the program.
Kamps reads USA Weekend in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The magazine — which turns 20 this year — also appears in 600-plus other newspapers with a combined circulation of more than 22 million.
