Wednesday, April 21 --- Festive with David Ulin
Wednesday at 2:30 on KPFK: It's springtime in Southern California and the books are in bloom. This weekend, Sat-Sun, April 24 & 25, the Los Angeles Times hosts its 15th annual "Festival of Books" on the campus of UCLA. I'll chat with guest David Ulin, Books editor, on his own writing, on reading, on the Times Book Prize nominees and, yes, some highlights from the upcoming two-day biblio-thon of panels, readings and interviews. For complete schedule of events visit the site.
Note: "Bibliocracy" will broadcast LIVE from the KPFK booth, at 1:30 pm on Sunday, following Suzi Weissman, Terrence McNally and Ian Masters. So if you can't be there, tune in for special programming and reports from the dugout. More about my guest: David Ulin is one of the smartest fellows you can meet. Besides editing, he is himself the author of three books and in this interview with me reads from a commentary he is developing into another. Ulin is moderating panels this weekend and interviewing the mighty Dave Eggers. See you at the Festival! And please do stop by the KPFK booth (213) or Santa Monica Review booth (504) and say hello. http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/
