On 30 March I talked with Mary Roach, author of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, about her most receont book Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, which has just been published in paperback by W W Norton. Mary Roach will appear at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley at 7 PM on Thursday 9 April in an event co-sponsored by Literature Alive!, the CftA and Words on Paper. More information is at 274-8384, extension 14.
I then talked with Lawrence Weschler about two books which come close to defining California art in the last 40 years. His 1983 book Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees has just been published in an expanded edition with the subtitle Thirty Years of Conversations with Robert Irwin by the University of California Press along with a new one True to Life: Twenty-five Years of Conversations with David Hockney.
