the glorious Vegetables of ItalyI’m about to let you in on what is not known to most lovers of asparagus:  you probably could be eating a late harvest of locally grown asparagus right now.  I am.  Most growers only plan for the normal spring asparagus season, but if you follow the advice in this article, another six to eight weeks of eating that divine vegetable can be yours to enjoy.  It may be too late for this year, but now you can plan ahead.

More about vegetables when we visit with Domenica Marchetti, author of the glorious Vegetables Of Italy on the first half of this week’s show.  You can learn more about Domenica by clicking here.  I hope you try the pasta recipe featuring cherry tomatoes from her book.  You can find it at the bottom of the blog post.

Book Cover: Lost ClerihewsWith authors and book titles swirling incessantly inside his head, legendary literary tastemaker Paul Ingram of Iowa City's Prairie Lights Bookstore fell victim to clerihew mania. The result? A new book, The Lost Clerihews of Paul Ingram, published recently by Ice Cube Press and illustrated with Julia Anderson-Miller's witty and thoughtful pen-and-ink drawings. As award-winning author Elizabeth McCracken reports in the foreword, this book is "everything that Paul Ingram himself is: hilarious, ribald, tender, erudite, naughty." Watch out!

Watch the trailer! The age of E documentary film Alive Inside starts Friday at the Alive Inside posterOrpheum Theatre. The best way to decide if you want to see this inspiring film is to watch the trailer. Just search "Alive Inside trailer". "Alive Inside is a joyous cinematic exploration of music's capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music." I sent the trailer out and people replied "I wish I would have done this for my loved-one." "Alive Inside packs as potent a simple emotional wallop as anything you'll see - or hear - anywhere this year." - Globe & Mail. Watch the trailer, be inspired and send it out to folks you know will resonate with it. "No film I've seen better underlines the transcendental power and mysticism that music has over human emotions than Alive Inside." - Movie Mezzanine

Also, held over at the Orpheum, the intriguing, compellingly entertaining doc Finding Vivian Maier. Yes indeed, it's the golden age of documentaries.

We'll discuss that, the new releases, last weeks surprising box office results and more on the Filmosophers, with the teetotaling beer brothers Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30.

Ferguson, Missouri is not that far from Fairfield. After an unarmed black teenager was shot by a cop in broad daylight this past weekend in the St. Louis suburb, it has become a catalyst for a wider debate on race, poverty, and the efficacy of the militarization of our local police forces.

Join us for a look at the SWATification of America on INSIDE THE HEADLINES with Newsvandal JP Sottile and KRUU station manager James Moore. This week's three tiers include that police state of mind; oil & vinegar in the climate change game; and animals are people, too.

On the Observation Car book coverIowa Writers Workshop alumnus Wayne Johnson credits his ability to create award-winning fiction to story angels singing in his ears. Creativity tricks Wayne gleaned from UI's master writers just might play a part in his ability to elicit his muses' support. While discussing his latest story collection, On the Observation Car, Wayne reveals techniques he gleaned from Wallace Stegner ("pin setting"), John Updike (forward lean), and Jane Smiley ("that delicious question of outcome--the need to know 'what happens . . .'"). Tune in to The Studio with Cheryl this week for Wayne's insightful, often comic musings on the source of his fiction and the origins of creativity.
