LA-Lit Makes Its PennSound Debut
Hello All - I am very excited! LA-Lit is making it's debut at Penn Sound!

Today, we're launching a new page for LA-Lit, an innovative podcast series hosted by Mathew Timmons and Stephanie Rioux. Recorded at Betalevel, the program seeks to capture "the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place," through the voices of "poets, novelists, hybridists, and non-genre text authors" living in or visiting the LA area. The series features readings and conversations with authors familiar to PennSound listeners — including Lee Ann Brown, Will Alexander, Sawako Nakayasu and Diane Ward — along with panel discussions on LA and Bay Area poetics; yet, perhaps even more importantly, LA-Lit provides an opportunity to discover emerging voices within this thriving West Coast literary community.
We're introducing the series with twenty-four episodes recorded between 2005 and 2007, and will be adding newer episodes at a later date. Click on the title above to visit PennSound's LA-Lit series page, which includes details on specific episodes as well as a link to LA-Lit's home page, where you'll find photos, author bios and information on how you can attend upcoming recording sessions.
