SongWriter Live with Susan Orlean and Diana Gameros

June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Litquake and KQED Live present a night with SongWriter, a podcast that turns stories into songs (featured guests have included Questlove, Joyce Carol Oates, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Roxane Gay, and Craig Finn of The Hold Steady).

In this special live recording event, bestselling author Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief, The Library Book) will share a story from her recent collection On Animals, and local songwriter Diana Gameros will play a brand new song written in response. SongWriter’s creator Ben Arthur will host, and engage the artists in a conversation with UC Berkeley researcher Laura Simone Lewis on animal intelligence.
