Write On! Radio
Tuesday July 15th, we speak with Minnesota Book Award winner Wang Ping about her newest book of poetry Ten Thousand Waves. She is the author of several books of poetry and prose, including The Last Communist Virgin, Aching for Beauty, The Magic Whip and Of Flesh and Spirit.
And we'll chat with Bob Hale about his upcoming memoir Frog Town Fade In, a book about immigrants, his ancestors from East Europe, Gypsy ancestors, a wild great aunt and her bootleg dealer husband stomped to death by police. Bob Hale also used to be a KFAI host and is an internationally renowned musician.
