Tonight, we will play the last two installments of Christmas in France, brief recordings of music and narration telling of celebrations in Alsace, in the east, and in Provence, in the south. Then, there will be three songs for children, some golden oldies, and finally new music from France and French-speaking countries.
In this show, we talk with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley, author of A Thousand Acres, Private Life, and also a new series of books for young readers, the latest of which is A Good Horse.
We also talk with writer, consultant, and literary agent Scott Edelstein. Scott Edelstein is the author of many books and articles, and his newest book, Sex and the Spiritual Teacher, will be published in March 2011 by Wisdom Publications.
