Minnesota is blessed with a disproportionate number of great writers, novelists and individuals in publishing and communications. Writers Corner hopes to bring many of these people to viewers who would like to know them better and learn more about their professions — once a month in half-hour episodes. You’re welcome to take that trip with us.
SPECIAL APPEARANCES AND TOPICS
Occasionally. a topic or individual mandates us to deviate from our usual formula of presenting two authors to discuss their craft. And so it was on Oct. 20, 2023, when retired MN Supreme Court Justice PAUL ANDERSON, a prolific writer of hundreds or articles and opinions, teamed up with ALAN MILLER to discuss the subject of book banning and censorship, and their threat to literature and democracy.
We were especially fortunate to sit down with CHRIS HEWITT, Book Editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune about his position, how he selects books to review from the hundreds of submissions that arrive, and in general his philosophy about the reviewing process, including not being shy to talk about books which disappoint him.
