Wednesday, Oct 2 - No Kidding!

Tonight at 8 PM on Bibliocracy Radio, KPFK 90.7 FM:  SUZY SORO and BETSY SALKIND, two contributors to NO KIDDING:  WOMEN WRITERS ON BYPASSING PARENTHOOD.  In studio, reading and talking about this project, and cracking wise, funny and political, these two writers and performers join me to explore the alternately sincere, sardonic, careful, reckless --- did I say funny? --- and humane perspectives of childless or, if you will, child-free women. A delightful collection of manifestos, meditations, celebrations of independence from the often oppressive social expectations of motherhood, or sometimes just rants, the 37 essays in No Kidding are defenses, confessions and provocations from, among others, Jennifer Coolidge, Margaret Cho and editor Henriette Mantel. The volumes from the the urgently activist and committed Seal Press, which has bolstered women writers for decades. Bestsy Salkind is a writer for television, stand-up comic and author of a desperately mean and hilarious take on Sunday School Bible stories. Comedian, actor and writer Suzy Soro wrote the memoir, Celebrity sTalker: Stories from a Woman Who Thinks Celebrities are Dying to Talk to Her. Only They Aren't. Thanks for listening.  Heads up for the fund drive, when the station asks you, no kidding, to pay for the only real alternative community media in Southern California.  Listen on the radio or online, and anytime you like as a free download from the KPFK archives.
