Monday 4 August 2008; Catherine Stifter/Francisco Lovato
On 4 August John Fletcher hosted Booktown.

In the first half of the program he played an interview with Catherine Stifter which I recorded last week. A radio producer for the last 30 years, Catherine has been a blogger for the last five. She has recently combined both interests, creating a website and blog to accompany her recent radio documentary Saving the Sierra. She will conduct workshops on blogging at the 4th Annual Sacramento State Summer Writers Conference on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August. You can get a foretaste of her presentation by going to the blog she has created for the Conference.

In the second half of the program John talked with Francisco Lovato about his book Survivor, which describes his father Frank's ordeal during the Bataan Death March in World War II.
