Since this show aired during pledge week at KRCB-FM, it is a good time to thank you for your tangible financial support. For although Word By Word is archived and made available around the world as podcasts on NPR, Gil Mansergh’s hour-long Conversations With Writers shows are produced locally, in KRCB-FM’s Rohnert Park Studios.  Over the years, your generosity has permitted us to chat about books and writing with Pulitzer Prize, and National Book Award winners, McArthur Grant recipients, and local writers whose primary jobs are as electrical engineers, physicists, police dispatchers, farmers, teachers, artists, photographers, and students. We’ve met people who write novels, histories, mysteries, biographies, poems, screenplays, documentary scripts, stage plays, newspaper serials, short stories, and memoirs.

How great is that?

Word by Word Conversations with Writers is hosted by Gil Mansergh and can be heard on the second Sunday of the month at 10:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB App for your favorite mobile device.
