Monday 28 September 2009: Kim Addonizio/Ethan Canin
On 28 September I talked with Oakland poet Kim Addonizio about her new book of poems Lucifer at the Starlite (W W Norton). We also talked a bit about her recent book on the craft of poetry Ordinary Genius: A Guide for the Poet Within ( also Norton). She will appear at City Lights Books in San Francisco at 7 PM on Wednesday 30 September.

I then played an interview I recorded last week with short-story-writer and novelist Ethan Canin. We mostly discussed his novels For Kings and Planets and America America. He will be the featured writer at Literature Alive!'s Wordslingers Festival at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley on 10 October. He will lead a writing workshop from 10:30 to noon, be present at a wine reception at 6 and speak at 7:30.
