Monday 3 April 2006

On 3 April I talked with Karen Armstrong, author of The Great Transformation: The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions (Knopf) and many other books.

I then talked with Andrew Wingfield, author of Hear Him Roar (Utah State University Press).

Upcoming literary events include Arnaud Maitland, author of Living without Regret: Growing Old in the Light of Tibetan Buddhism (Dharma Publishing), who will lead a daylong series of events at Saint Joseph's Cultural Center in Grass Valley starting at 10 AM on Saturday 15 April; and Willma Gore, author of dozen of children's books and several adult books, who will speak on A Lifetime of Writing for Love, Fun and Profit at 7 PM on Wednesday 12 April at the Madelyn Helling County Library in Nevada City, a presentation of Sierra Writers. (I incorrectly said on the air that Willma Gore would be here on Saturday 15 April).
