Monday 16 April 2007

On 16 April I talked with short story master Deborah Eisenberg about her four volumes of stories. She will be featuring the latest of these, Twilight of the Superheroes (Picador), at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on 28-29 April.

I then talked with California Poet Laureate Al Young, who is touring the state from north to south as part of National Poetry Month and will read from his poems at the Madelyn Helling County Library in Nevada City at 7 PM this evening. His latest book is Coastal Nights and Inland Afternoons (Angel City Press). Bill Gainer and Gail Entrekin will also read from their work.
