‘Well Read’ TV show to feature books and authors

Here’s an announcement from Mary Ann Gwinn, The Seattle Times book editor: mary ann.jpg

I’m always looking to spread the love of books and authors we feel here at the Seattle Times — here’s something new, a TV program devoted to both.

Starting Tuesday, April 3, I’ll be a regular guest on a new show that will air both on TVW, the state public access television station, and KBTC, the Tacoma public television station.

My former Seattle Times colleague Terry Tazioli is the host for “Well Read.” After his interview with each week’s featured author, Taz and I will discuss other excellent books, some related to the author or subject of the week, some not.

Our first guest is Kent Hartman, the Portland-based author of “The Wrecking Crew,” a lively book devoted to the story of how an un-credited group of Los Angeles-based musicians secretly played all the instruments on hundreds of top 40 hits in the 1960s and early 70s (you think that was the Byrds on “Mr. Tambourine Man?” It was, er, maybe one Byrd). Afterward, we’ll talk about other great rock memoirs.

Future guests include Jim Lynch, Olympia author of “Truth Like the Sun,” and George Dyson, Bellingham author of “Turing’s Cathedral.”

“Well Read” airs at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on KBTC and at 7 and 10 p.m. on TVW. Check local listings. You can also watch streams of the episodes on both tvw.org and www.kbtc.org.
