New Radio Show Featuring Biographers Premieres

A discussion of gender and whether biographers can write about subjects of a different gender were part of a lively discussion between members of BIO on new monthly radio program devoted to biography.

The program, called “Collected Words,” is produced by Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It premièred on April 3 on KVSF. BIO president James McGrath Morris served as host to inaugural guests Carl Rollyson, who just published a biography of Sylvia Plath, and Megan Marshall, whose new book on Margaret Fuller came out last month.

The show will air weekly, but only the first program of each month will be devoted to biography. You can hear the first program on this archived podcast.
