Tonight on Bib, 8 PM on KPFK: RACELLE ROSETT. A special program tonight in an occasional series of performance editions of the show, part of my effort to present and collect work by area Southern California writers of short fiction I admire, on the only place on the radio – KPFK – where you will hear contemporary writing read. So, tonight, reading a complete short story in one sitting, Racelle Rosett. She is an award-winning television writer who’s lately received acclaim for her new collection, Moving Waters. These are funny, smart and, yes, moving interconnected short stories about the members of a Hollywood Reform synagogue who discover the place and meaning of ritual in their lives. Tonight she reads her short story “Shomer,” for you on Bibliocracy. SPECIAL APPEAL FROM THE BIBLIOFELLA: Next week the Spring 2013 fund drive begins.
Please! Pledge to Bibliocracy and receive a Local Writers Six-Pack, six books by six important, talented area fiction writers whose work I have recently shared on this show: Dwight Yates, Gary Amdahl, Alisa Slaughter, Tod Goldberg, Diane Lefer and, yes, Racelle Rosett. Receive their work (short story collections by each) as a big thank-you from me for a modest $75 pledge. Bibliocracy pitches live next Wednesday night, but you let me know on this blog or via email, and I will take your pledge early, and thank you on air! Thanks!
