For the culminating event of this year’s One Read community reading program, we present author Amor Towles live online in conversation with KFRU’s David Lile. Mr. Towles will discuss the research and writing of his bestselling book “A Gentleman in Moscow.” He will also be answering questions submitted by readers in the community. To submit your own questions, fill out the short form below.
We always say that while we call this program One Read, creating a successful month of events takes the work of many. This past year, a volunteer from Columbia Access Television, one of our community partners, filmed author George Hodgman’s charming, insightful and moving talk at Columbia College. He spoke about the writing of “Bettyville,” caring for his mother in her final days and the importance of a safe place to call home. If you were unable to attend that talk, or if you simply want to relive the magic of that evening, here is the recording. Enjoy!
