Wordweavers -- Saturday Jan 5 at 4pm (replays Monday 11 pm)

Please join us on Wordweavers, for something old, and someone new.

Something old :  On January First over 50,000 works from 1923 -- including poetry, novels, movies and music -- came into the public domain. Due to a change in the copyright law there have been no such releases for the last 20 years.  Examples include Robert Frost "New Hampsire", ee cummings "Tulips and Chimneys" and Kahlil Gibran "The Prophet".  Plus "Yes! We have no bananas!"

Someone new : Amy Marsh is a fantasy novelist, blogger, poet, clinical sexologist, and certified hypnotist, new to Lake County. Among other things she'll be talking about and reading from her fantasy novel completed last year, The Dire Deeds of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits (set in Hawai'i) and her sequel in progress, The Witching Work of the Guild of the Ornamental Hermits (set in Lake County).

Amy will take phone calls towards the end of the program : call 707-263-3435 after we open the lines.

(Since we are talking about words here, and wish to keep well clear of any FCC violations, we won't be covering her professional life!)

The concert will be held in the Weaver Auditorium at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum, 16435 Main Street, Lower Lake.  The performance starts at 7:00 p.m.  Opening for Roy is KPFZ's own Herb Gura and Without a Net.  Without a Net will also be accompanying Roy on some of his songs. 

Tickets are $22 for KPFZ members and $25 for the general public.  Tickets are available at Catfish Coffee at14624 Lakeshore Drive in Clearlake, Watershed Books at 305 N.
