This week's show is a conversation I recorded recently with Kira Brunner Don and Timothy Don, founding directors of the Oakland Book Festival, happening this year (for the first time ever!) on May 31, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at City Hall. Kira grew up in Oakland, though she and Timothy just moved here (or in her case, moved back) from New York a few months ago. We talked about the event they've created and planned, what they hope the festival leads to, why the moved to Oakland, and the frequent comparisons between Oakland and Brooklyn.
If you're headed to the Oakland Book Festival on May 31, maybe I'll see you there. Let meknow if you want to say hello.
