The Word By Word guest for the March 12th show will be McArthur Genius Grant winner, Yiyun Li talking about her memoir Dear Friend, From My Life I Write To You In Your Life.  
 

For February’s Word By Word: Conversations With Writers, host Gil Mansergh welcomes the award-winning novelist and writing teacher, Joshua Mohr, whose literary memoir Sirens has just been released.

You might remember the jump-rope rhyme “Rich man, poor man beggar man thief, doctor lawyer, indian chief” and regular listeners to Word By Word: Conversations With Writers know that host Gil Mansergh has interviewed writers who who are rich and poor, who beg and steal, heal people, defend people and serve as Chairman of a local Native American tribe.

But Gil has never had a celebrity chef as his guest.

On Sunday, June 14th, Gil Mansergh hosts a special Grateful Dead version of Word By Word Conversations With Writers on North Bay Public Media KRCB-FM. His guest is librarian and cultural historian David Dodd, author of a massive book with the rather long title: The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics: The Collected Lyrics of Robert Hunter and John Barlow, Lyrics to All Original Songs With Selected Traditional and Cover Songs.

Conversations With Writers is one of the show's signature round-table discussions where four guests share microphones, and host Gil Mansergh tries to make sure listeners know whose voice is filling the airwaves.
