Monday 26 November 2007: Bill Boyarsky, Ruthanne Lum McCunn
On 26 November I talked with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Bill Boyarsky, author of Big Daddy: Jesse Unruh and the Art of Power Politics (University of California Press). Currently John Jacobs Fellow at UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies, Boyarsky is also a member of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission and writes a blog for the online journal LA Observed.

I then talked with Ruthanne Lum McCunn about her new novel God of Luck (Soho Press). Her earlier books include Thousand Pieces of Gold and Wooden Fish Songs, of which Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS) presented a concert reading in Nevada City in 1997. She will appear at Gold Mountain Tea Shop in Nevada City at 7 PM on Saturday 1 December.
