On the first Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m., poet Jan Dederick, book editor Myn Adess and I co-host a program about “books and the publishing revolution” on KWMR Radio in Point Reyes Station, a gorgeous coastal community about 40 miles north of San Francisco.
The show is called Radio Bookmobile, and during this hour, we take a look at the modern book scene by discussing some of the most beautifully written passages one can discover in books, as well as websites, magazines, blogs, movies, ads and social media.
In some cases these excerpts reflect the chaos and confusion that have struck book and media industries since the Internet began. That’s the “publishing revolution” that’s still in turmoil, as fascinating and tragic as it is inspiring and full of surprises.
You can listen to the Bookmobile via streaming on KWMR.org or by clicking on the Archive links to the right. There I’ve condensed a selection of past shows, with new ones coming soon.
