Micheal Krasny, Host of KQED’s Forum,
Will Speak ABout His New Book,
A memoir of the Talk Radio and Literary Life
(Stanford University Press, 2007)
Mike Krasny has been a member of the English faculty at SF State since 1970. He is also on the country’s leading interviewers of literary luminaries and has been called “a maestro for educated listeners who prefer their discourse high and civil.” His new book is a memoir in which he recounts his early desire to become a novelist and then his discovery of his talent as a communicator. He says, “Trying to meld life into art as I read and interpreted and taught and wrote about writers, I went on to talk and talk and talk with writers until I had interviewed more writers perhaps than anyone ever has or will or should. I was on the road. My own road to literary Damascus. More than ever, I wanted to live a life that could answer Bellow’s primary question: How should a good man live.”
All members of the Friends are encouraged to attend.
All members of the faculty are invited.
Krasny’s book will be available for purchases
during the reception following the presentation.
