NC Writers Network & Frank Gioia Today on WPVM Radio
Notice: because of technical issues at the radio station, this show has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 22. 3-5 PST: WPVMfm.org or 103.7 fm in Asheville, NC
Fresh from the field Tony Robles, our own people’s poet, storyteller and radio reporter spoke to the Executive Director of the North Carolina Writers Network, who has a new book out, poets, historians, memoirists, publishers and a poet laureate, about the state of writing, the mental state of writers and their thoughts about banned books too. We bring you a bouquet of his conversations, and our associate producer DJ Jeannie Hopper picked a special mix of comments collected about banning books. In the second hour we sample some heirloom stories from a boyhood in Brooklyn, when we hear about The Mercury Man, a collection of short stories by Frank Gioia. Please savor the scents and feel the fresh ideas flowing…
