Spark: When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Art


Friday, February 11, 2011

This month we're celebrating 360's first decade on the air with the publication of the book Spark: How Creativity Works, by long-time Studio 360 executive producer Julie Burstein. In the book, scores of America's greatest filmmakers, writers, musicians and artists give readers an inside look at their creative processes and inspiration.

This week, Kurt and Julie discuss three different artists who confronted unique challenges and turned them into art: photographer Joel Meyerowitz, poet Donald Hall, and playwright Lynn Nottage.

To hear our original full-length interviews with those artists go here.

Either that was fast, or my computer is playing tricks on me. I must have hovered too close to the Amazon link, because I now see you've done exactly what I suggested. Sorry!

I enjoyed your segment on Spark, but as events coordinator at an indie bookstore, I was sad to find that when I click on the book at your site, the link takes visitors to Amazon. Why not link to the publishers' site, instead, and let visitors decide where to buy the book, so there's a level playing field for indie stores and the big guys?
