Exchange Exemplar: Brian Doyle Remembered

University of Portland

It seems like just a short time ago that award-winning writer Brian Doyle visited our studio, brimming with stories and good humor. 

Less than a year after his visit, his doctors diagnosed a brain tumor.  Brian Doyle died on May 27th at the age of 60; his memorial service is set for today (June 2nd) in Portland. 

The occasion is sad, but the life was brilliant.  We replay our interview here, grateful for an hour spent in the company of someone so warm and friendly.
