American routes

Nick Spitzer, an musical ethnographer who loves to talk about the nexus of cultures that is New Orleans, came to the Writers House this afternoon to tell some "stories and songs from the road." He's of course the producer and host of public radio's "American Routes." Of course we made a video of the event - also downloadable audio. I happily introduced Nick, grateful that a few years ago he found me at the Writers House and instantly understood the experiment in creative learning community we were trying.
