Posting this for my pal Jordan, the host of Word by Word:
Don’t forget to tune into Word by Word Weds. May 4th at 7 pm Pacific Time at: www.krcb.org (click the “Listen” button). Host Jordan Rosenfeld speaks with Philip Beard, author of Dear Zoe, and Sue Miller author, Lost in the Forest (among many others).Both authors’ books discuss deaths in the family, and the awakening of a teenage girl through grief and bewilderment.
If you miss a show, they are archived (approximately two weeks after airing) at Word by Word’s ON-DEMAND page, where dozens of previous shows can already be heard.
May 18th: Steve Almond, author of the new collection of short stories The Evil B.B.Chow as well as Candyfreak and My Life in Heavy Metal, plus Cyndi Cady speaks with Bart Schneider, author of Beautiful Inez. Also listen in for Susan Starbird’s regular column “Wordplay,” as she riffs on motherhood.
