Woody Guthrie: visual artist

10:00 PM Woody Guthrie night with Steven Brower, co-author of Woody Guthrie Artworks. We will be talking about the book and Brower's research and thoughts about Guthrie as a visual artist.

On the next Live from Where?

Wednesday, February 15, 8 p.m. Musician, visual artist, craftsman, singer and songwriter Brian Dewan will be performing at the next WPKN Live from Where? on the air cofeehouse broadcast. Dewan sings original compositions while playing the accordion and zither (including an electrified 88 string instrument of his own design). The late great BBC producer John Peel said "Dewan is an American original and truly a Renaissance man." PopMatters says "Brian Dewan rocks out on his self-crafted 88-string electric zither... if contemporary parlor music with unusual zither accompaniment is what you seek, there's truly nothing else like it." Dewan offers a unique bridge between the tradition and the contemporary, displaying a love of folk music and a distinctly personal vision. This concert takes place at Radio Station WPKN. It will broadcast live on radio station WPKN FM at 89.5 FM and WPKM FM at 88.7. The program is free but a donation is requested. Seating is limited reservation are suggested.

Bob Johnson interviews...

Saturday, January 14th, 10:00 AM - Bob Johnson Bob Katz will be my guest via phone. He is the author of Elaine's Circle: A Teacher, A Student, A Classroom and One Unforgettable Year. It is a true story of an inspiring fourth grade teacher in Eagle River, Alaska and a 10 year old boy diagnosed with cancer. Howard Zinn said this about the book: "Bob Katz here gives us a book that gets to the heart and soul of teaching... Impending tragedy becomes an occasion for what should be the goal of all education, young people working together to have life triumph over death." 12:00 Noon Author and rain forest expert John Harrison discusses his book "Off The Map." It is a terrifying and often humorous story that follows Harrison and his wife Heather deep into an unexplored region of the Amazon rain forests in the Guiana Highlands that border Brazil. With just a canoe and a shotgun, the couple follow the most remote tributary of the Amazon River. Harrison tells their story as, unaided and off the map, they encounter jaguars and poisonous frogs, are threatened by malaria, and almost lose their way entirely. More info: http://www.ipgbook.com/showbook.cfm?bookid=1556525192 1:00 PM Russell Banks talks about his book "The Darling." The paperback edition has just been released. Mr. Banks is a prolific writer of fiction, he has won numerous awards and prizes for his work, among them a Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowships, Best American Short Story Award, Mr. Banks' titles include "The Relation of My Imprisonment," "Affliction," "The Sweet Hereafter," "Rule of the Bone," "Cloudsplitter," He has also contributed poems, stories and essays to The Boston Globe Magazine, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Book Review, Esquire, Harper's, and many other publications.

10:00 AM - Bob Johnson Bob Katz will be my guest via phone. He is the author of Elaine's Circle: A Teacher, A Student, A Classroom and One Unforgettable Year. It is a true story of an inspiring fourth grade teacher in Eagle River, Alaska and a 10 year old boy diagnosed with cancer. Howard Zinn said this about the book: "Bob Katz here gives us a book that gets to the heart and soul of teaching... Impending tragedy becomes an occasion for what should be the goal of all education, young people working together to have life triumph over death." 12:00 Noon Author and rain forest expert John Harrison discusses his book "Off The Map." It is a terrifying and often humorous story that follows Harrison and his wife Heather deep into an unexplored region of the Amazon rain forests in the Guiana Highlands that border Brazil. With just a canoe and a shotgun, the couple follow the most remote tributary of the Amazon River. Harrison tells their story as, unaided and off the map, they encounter jaguars and poisonous frogs, are threatened by malaria, and almost lose their way entirely. More info: http://www.ipgbook.com/showbook.cfm?bookid=1556525192 1:00 PM Russell Banks talks about his book "The Darling." The paperback edition has just been released. Mr. Banks is a prolific writer of fiction, he has won numerous awards and prizes for his work, among them a Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowships, Best American Short Story Award, Mr. Banks' titles include "The Relation of My Imprisonment," "Affliction," "The Sweet Hereafter," "Rule of the Bone," "Cloudsplitter," He has also contributed poems, stories and essays to The Boston Globe Magazine, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Book Review, Esquire, Harper's, and many other publications.
