We talk with novelist Richard Ford about his newest book, Canada.  Richard Ford is the author of the Bascombe novels, which include The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day—the first novel to win the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award—and The Lay of the Land, as well as the short story collections Rock Springs and A Multitude of Sins, which contain many widely anthologized stories.

We also speak with journalist Jim Walsh and Pete Christensen about their new project, Buddha and a Beer, a partly philosophical and partly musical discussion Monday nights in May and June at Bryant-Lake Bowl.  More information is available at http://bryantlakebowl.com/calendar/shows/buddha-and-beer.
