Event Details


Join us for CapRadio Reads: Authors on Stage on October 23, 2017

NY2140Capital Public Radio is excited to announce the expansion of its CapRadio Reads program with the addition of Authors on Stage, a series of appearances by New York Times best-selling writers. Authors on Stage will complement CapRadio Reads' other programs: CapRadio Book Club, moderated by Vicki Lorini and "In Conversation" hosted Donna Apidone, typically held in our Community Room at CapRadio Studios.

This new series will be hosted by Allen Pierleoni, who orchestrated and hosted the Sacramento Bee Book Club for 16 years. He will engage with authors in front of an audience, beginning with sci-fi great, Kim Stanley Robinson.

Through 21 novels, Robinson has transported readers into plausible futures and pasts, on Earth and throughout the universe. Now, in "New York: 2140," he visits New York City more than a century from now. Global warming has caused the oceans to rise 50 feet, turning the city into a "super-Venice," where streets are canals and skyscrapers are islands.

"When you write science fiction, you're writing realism," Robinson said. "We're now living in a science fiction novel we're all writing together."

Robinson has won Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards. He lives in Davis, CA.
