Simons Public Humanities Fellow, radio producer Angela Elam to speak at KU

Simons Public Humanities Fellow Angela Elam will share her presentation "The Power of Narrative: From Poetry to Podcasts" at Kansas University's Hall Center for the Humanities on Tuesday.

Elam, who is the producer and host of KCUR's nationally syndicated literary radio show "New Letters on the Air," has spent her Simons fellowship interviewing various Kansas writers and visiting Hall Center authors for the program, while also examining the power of narrative, particularly in public media.

"From Poetry to Podcasts" will include audio excerpts of creative writers who demonstrate techniques now commonly used in nonfiction storytelling and make a case for the impact of poetry on radio.

The presentation will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Hall Center, 900 Sunnyside Ave. RVSPs were required last week. For more information, contact 864-4798 or
