Ms Albinia will be appearing from 4 to 7 PM next Sunday 2 May at the Peace and Justice Center, 48 South 7th Street in San Jose; more information from Ijaz Syed (408-838-0952) or Rehman Kakepoto (916-968-4991).

I then talked with Seth G Jones about his book In the Graveyard of Empires: The American War in Afghanistan, which has also just come out in paperback from Norton.

I talked very briefly at the end of the program with poet Tom Wilson about a reading to honor the end of National Poetry Month which will take place from 6 to 8 PM on Friday 30 April at Broad Street Bistro in Nevada City; readers will include Tom, Alicia Vandevorst, Ron Tranquilla and MaryAnn McDonell with a musical interlude on classical guitar by Shabda. There will also be a reading of poetry and prose on motherhood and mothers, sons and daughters from 3:30 to 5:30 PM on Saturday 8 May (the day before Mothers Day) at Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters in Grass Valley.

You could call this the South Asia program.
