Wednesday night at The LA Central Library (in downtown):
The Working Poet Radio Show is a new program dedicated to the working lives of creative people.
Host Joseph Lapin and Producer J. David Gonzalez are interested in the poetry that powers everyone from novelists to graphic designers to nanotechnologists.
WPRS celebrates National Poetry Month with special guests:
Chiwan Choi - Editor of Writ Large Press and the “Jay-Z of Poetry”
Michelle Meyering - Director of Programs and Events at PEN Center USA and founding editor of The Rattling Wall
Luis J. Rodriguez - author of Always Running: La Vida Loca: Gang Days in LA and a candidate for California Governor

WPRS will also be a simulcast. It will be recorded for a podcast, and the show will be taped live in an effort to create a dynamic new voice for the humanities.
