NaNoWriMo may sound like a disease. Or maybe a biotech startup.

But it’s actually the nickname adopted by National Novel Writing Month. And, in November, North Texans are among the 300,000 people across the country who are trying to write a novel in just 30 days.

Also, famed architect Renzo Piano chats about his latest creation: the Piano Pavilion. We look to the skies later this month for what’s been dubbed the “Comet of the Year”, and we’ll hear from a North Texan who met and mourned President Kennedy – all in one day.
