Monday 14 April 2008: Wen Huang/Darryl Hickman
On 14 April I talked with Wen Huang, translator of The Corpse Walker: Real-Life Stories, China from the Bottom Up (Pantheon) by Chinese dissident author Liao Yiwu.

I then talked with master acting teacher Darryl Hickman about his book The Unconscious Actor: Out of Control, In Full Command (Small Mountain Press). Hickman will appear at the Book Seller in Grass Valley at 3 PM on Saturday 19 April. Admission is free but seating is limited. For more information call Karen Leigh Sharp at 530-292-1626.
