Literary Dialogs Opening Image
is a new series featuring fabulous writers and poets reading from their own works in conversation with me. Produced by Literary Dialogs with Nina Serrano Estuary Press, the series will appear on my Youtube channel and on my website. The series is designed to spread the love of language as we move in resistance to the forces of hate, ignorance, and cruelty. Created in our Vallejo, CA, home studio, the series opens new possibilities for me more compatible with my current mobility and energies.
In each program, I interview writers and poets who, like Estuary Press, share a commitment to peace, justice, and a healthy planet. I dialog with artists who play with language and expand its meaning to make ideas and feelings available to the viewer.
Fifty Years of Passion for the Spoken Word
I have been sharing my passion for literature and the spoken word for over half a century! This passion underlies writing my own
poems, plays, fiction, radio scripts, and blogs, directing theatre and films, or hosting interviews with authors, or leading poetry writing workshops in schools and cultural centers for children and adults.
Please subscribe (in the column on the right on this page) to receive an email notice and a link to the next program. They’ll leave you inspired with fresh thoughts and new perspectives.
Literary Dialogs will also air on my KPFA radio programs La Raza Chronicles 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 7 pm and Open Book 2nd Wednesday of the month series. as well as occasionally excerpted for the Cover to Cover Nina and Jack show on the first Wednesday of the month.
