place at one time. The hosts agreed, "We had to make this broadcast to

visions, and ways to escape detection until the last Chapter, include
featured speaker, novelist Nancy Kress, poet Marvin Bell, P.R. man Milton
Kahn, songwriters Rick & Janis Carnes, the prolific Eva Shaw (who promises
to reveal her secrets for being that way), "Murder She Wrote" writer Tom
Sawyer and famed detective novelist Sara Paretsky.
Lively discussion about the joys and perils of the writing business is the
order of the afternoon. It's lunch break at the Writer's Conference.
Listen in and be a fly on Studio B's wall. To break up lunch, David
promises to wind up the Audiola and play some vaudeville variations on
Willie The Shake, Top Banana of Avon.
The next "Live From The Islands" special is scheduled for April 24 from
Greenbank Farm for the Burning Word Festival, sponsored by the Washington

poetry and music in performance.
