Monday 30 October 2006

On 30 October I talked with Washington Post reporter Anthony Shadid, who won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for the stories he filed from Iraq and whose book Night Draws Near: Iraq's People in the Shadow of America's War has just been released in paperback by Picador. He will speak at Black Oak Books in Berkeley this Wednesday 1 N0vember at 8 PM. I recorded this interview on a home computer with sleeping cats in the room. Shadid's voice is somewhat echoey, but the waking cats' are strong and clear.

I then talked with David Callahan, author of The Moral Center: How We Can Reclaim Our Country from Die-Hard Extremists, Rogue Corporations, Hollywood Hacks, and Pretend Patriots (Harcourt).

I finally mentioned two upcoming events:
  • The Second City comedy improv group will present Truth, Justice, or the American Way at 6 and 9 PM on Saturday 4 November at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City as a fund-raiser for the Theatre. For more information call 265-6692.
