VILLAGE BOOKS: LITERATURE LIVE AIRS: 2:00PM SUNDAY on KMRE-LP 102.3 FM or on kmre.org
Grab your curiosity and your booklist and tune in to Village Books: Literature Live to listen to premiere authors from around the region read from their work, and occasionally sign autographs, too!
Each year Village Books hosts more than 300 events and they have hosted regional, national, and international superstars in the literary world. Authors we have hosted include Sherman Alexie, Garrison Keillor, Ralph Nader, Meg Tilly, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Suzuki, Terry Tempest Williams, Rick Steves, Ivan Doig and hundreds more. Many of these events have been fundraisers for local organizations such as the Whatcom Literacy Council, Northwest Indian College, Bellingham Boys & Girls Club and others. Village Books says, “We’re very proud of our Literature Live events program and even prouder of how we’ve been able to support our community with it. More importantly, without our community, we wouldn’t have our events. We’re so thankful for your support.”
