Writers’ Block


For those of you who don’t know it, there’s a great podcast that comes out of San Francisco’s NPR affiliate KQED called Writers’ Block. It’s a weekly reading series with a little bit of everything — and we mean everything. Junot Diaz, John Waters, Audrey Niffenegger, Daniel Handler (I could go on forever…) … all reading from their work on air! Last week when T Cooper was out in San Fran (for a fabulous City Lights event, a great indie bookstore), he stopped by KQED and taped the first four chapters of his new book The Beaufort Diaries. Listen in below, and if you want to subscribe to the series, you can do it via NPR or iTunes, whatever your preference.
