STANFORD UNIVERSITY STORYTELLING PROJECT

Today’s post is directed to my Alma Mater’s radio station, KZSU, 90.1 FM in the San Francisco Bay Area.  You can also find the station online at kzsuonline.stanford.edu.

This morning I received an email from Stanford, inviting me to attend the first in a series of “Big Shorts” in the new Stanford Storytelling Project.  This will be held at CoHo Café on campus next Tuesday, January 17 at 8 p.m.  It will run for one hour and feature readings by Tobias Wolff, Skip Horak, and Xandra Clarke.

KZSU also features audio podcasts on the station, and I am submitting two of my nearly 100 podcasts for broadcast consideration.  The first is Episode 1 from my thriller, Slaves On Horseback, and key parts of it take place at Stanford and environs.

The second submission is Episode 1 from Mr. Wugidgem And The Faces Of Freedom, which is Book Five in my Children’s Fantasy Series.  Our heroes, Debby and Michael, whisk away to Venezuela to join in anti-government demonstrations.

I hope to see some of you next Tuesday at CoHo at 8 p.m.

For my regular subscribers, I will post Episode 6 from my father’s autobiography, Talking To The World From Pan Am’s Clippers, tomorrow.

All the best,

Allan W. Chapman-Creative Writing Major, Class of 1964, Stanford University
