KMOX's Charlie Brennan will be in Concordia Seminary's Koburg Hall tonight taping his Book of the Month Club program. This live event is very popular with St. Louisans who enjoy being able to see authors in person. Tonight at 7 he will be interviewing Curtis Sittenfeld, a female fiction writer who (surprise!) has a new book out, Sisterhood.
Sittenfeld grew up in Cincinnati, but spent her high school years at the private Groton School in Massachusetts and her college years at Vassar and Stanford. With no connection to St. Louis I can find, her latest novel, Sisterhood, is set in St. Louis which is probably why she's here tonight. I haven't read the book, but reviewers' synopsis's hint that earthquakes and innate psychic abilities concerning future events are involved.
Charlie held one other Book of the Month Club show here at Concordia and it was fun to see all the technical people at work throughout and more especially to see Charlie because he is one very nice man and has been glowing in his public mentions of the seminary.
