'Seabiscuit' Is Subject of NBC, NPR Segments

"Seabiscuit: An American Legend," the recently-released book by Laura Hillenbrand that will occupy the top spot on the April 8 New York Times bestseller list for non-fiction, will be the focus of a segment on the Thursday (April 5) edition of the "NBC Nightly News" with Tom Brokaw.

Also, this weekend the author and her book will be profiled on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition" with Tom Simon.

"Seabiscuit" made its debut on the prestigious New York Times list at number eight and on April 1 moved to the number two slot, behind Bill O'Reilly's "The O'Reilly Factor" and just ahead of Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays With Morrie."
