Lois Lowry’s Giver & Talib Kweli’s Conscious Rap
Friday, April 25, 2014
This week, Kurt talks with Lois Lowry, the author of the YA classic The Giver, which is being turned into a movie starring Jeff Bridges this summer. We also hear from rising-star theater director Alex Timbers about his collaboration with David Byrne: a totally unironic disco musical about Imelda Marcos. And Talib Kweli talks about making rap you can listen to while you pick the kids up from school.
