- Writer's Voice - 20140131 - Laurie Halse Anderson

59:55 minutes (54.86 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

Laurie Halse AndersonThis week's guest on Writers' Voices is one of the most influential writers for young adults today. Laurie Halse Anderson's first young adult novel, "Speak" is the story of a young vicitm of sexual assault and is used in classrooms across the nation. Never one to avoid the tough subjects, her most recent book, "The Impossible Knife of Memory" is inspired by Anderson's own childhood, growing up with a father suffering from war-induced PTSD.  Already it is allowing teens who are living with this issue an opportunity for understanding and healing.

In speaking with Writers' Voices, Anderson tells about her journey from her early career as a journalist, why she began writing children's books, and her successful transition to young adult fiction. In addition to contemporary novels, she also has published a number of historical novels for young adults including the "Seeds of America" trilogy. The first book of that series, "Chains" takes the unusual perspective of a run-away slave during the American Revolution, and shines light on the little-known truth that at the time of the Declaration of Independence, even the Northern states were slave states. 

Join us this week on Writers' Voices for this fascinating conversation on writing for young adults.

- KRUU Programming - 20140130 - Monserrat Iñiguez

13:11 minutes (24.16 MB) Stereo 44kHz 256Kbps (CBR)

KRUU's Anna Brett speaks with Monserrat Iñiguez, of the The Village Urban Collective and The Soapbox Speakeasy. The Soapbox Speakeasy is a monthly spoken word event held the Saturday following ArtWalk at the Urban Village Collective.

The Soapbox Speakeasy is headlined by a different language artist each month- the headliner selects the theme, which sets the writing challenge, and the ensuing lineup is filled by poets who craft work to speak on the topic.

Headliners will have their printed work available for purchase at the event. The goal of the event is to inspire people to write- including audience members. It promotes a community of writers who gather to teach, write, share, rehearse, play and support each other, as well as develop material for performance and publishing. The Soapbox Speakeasy is presented by The Urban Village Collective, a space for craftspeople, artisans, and independent business owners to create, develop, and sell their products in a friendly cooperative setting. The UVC also functions as start-up support for new small businesses.

- Great Taste - 20140129 - Lolis Eric Elie and Joanne Chang

61:18 minutes (84.19 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

Many people have the mistaken idea that traveling for work to different places is a blast.  It can be, but working trade shows is usually more exhausting than exhilarating.  After almost three weeks on the road and three trade shows, I am thrilled to be home for a few weeks before leaving for two more trade shows in February.

The good news is I did enjoy some terrific meals-good food and great company are perfect for recharging my system after 8-10 hours of standing and talking.  More details perhaps next week, but the standout spots included Tartine, the bakery where Heli Claire Witherspoon works in San Francisco, a surprising meal at The Barrymore in Las Vegas, Nielsens Frozen Custard’s Vegas branch (not Ted Drewes, a St. Louis landmark, but very good), and two other favorite places in Vegas-Otto at The Venetian, and Chada Thai in a nondescript strip mall on the outskirts of Vegas’ Chinatown (not what you might expect-just one strip mall after another filled with restaurants and foot massage parlors).

Lolis Eric ElieOn the show this week I talk with two engaging authors about two terrific new books.  First up is Treme:  Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans by Lolis Eric Elie.  This book was inspired by the HBO series Treme, that concluded its four-year run in December 2013.  The book is a tribute to the culinary spirit and heritage of New Orleans, and Lolis is an amazing ambassador for the city.



Joanne ChangFlour, Too:  Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe’s Most Loved Sweets & Savories is a gift from Joanne Chang.  Mouthwatering may be a commonly used word to describe recipes, but I can’t think of a better way to characterize the amazing variety of cakes, soups, sandwiches, and other goodies that Joanne has included in this follow-up to her first cookbook-Flour.  She was so much fun to talk with, and shed some interesting light on both her cultural background and her chosen profession.

Don't miss GREAT TASTE this week on KRUU at 7:00 pm CT Wednesday and 7:00 am CT on Friday.
