Radio broadcaster Michael Silverblatt has a reputation as one of America’s première literary correspondents as the host of the talk show Bookworm on KCRW in Los Angeles.
Silverblatt will be changing things up with an interview with Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin on Friday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m., live at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café.
The subjects of the session will include film, reading, dreams and art.
Maddin admits he is an atypical subject for Silverblatt, who usually interviews authors.
"I sure didn’t write a book," Maddin says.
"I have been on Michael’s show once before. The pop group Sparks and I are on the only two Bookworm shows that don’t feature writers," Maddin says. "I’m very proud."
Bookworm is distributed to more than 50 radio stations across the U.S. Its theme song was created for the show by Sparks.
