Guest Host: Korva Coleman

A good book, short story or poem can provide a reader with a window into other cultures and places in time. The National Endowment for the Arts is trying to use literature to promote better cultural understanding. We discuss how literature and art have improved America’s global perspective in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks.


  • David Kipen Director of Literature, the National Endowment for the Arts.
  • Jorge Hernandez Editor, "Sun, Stone and Shadows: 20 Great Mexican Short Stories" (Fondo de Cultura Economica USA)
  • Candida Mannozzi Former owner, Candida's World of Books
