In two previous "Saluting Women" posts I have featured writers, Barbara Kingsolver and Margaret Atwood, who have appeared on the Talking Volumes program at the Fitzgerald Theatre in downtown St. Paul. The hostess, Kerri Miller, has done a spectacular job of interviewing all of her guests, both male and female, over the years. When we attend, which is often, both DH and I always love the evening's performance because Miller is a skillful interviewer using humor and probing questions to draw out the writers who appear on the program. She is knowledgeable about the writers and keeps a light-hearted touch while using interesting background information to keep both the audience and her subject engaged. Watch for the scheduled programs on MPR and be sure to attend if you are in the area. I guarantee that you will enjoy an interesting and entertaining evening.
