A fun way to learn about North State writers is to tune in to North State Public Radio’s weekly radio program, Nancy’s Bookshelf. The host, Nancy Wiegman, has lived in Chico since 1990. She started broadcasting with Chico State University’s NPR station KCHO as a classical announcer that same year. She has hosted Nancy’s Bookshelf since 2007.
Every week, Nancy interviews local, regional, or national authors. Just this year, Nancy has interviewed three Writers Forum members:
Recent guests include a neurosurgeon on America’s health care system, a high school teacher on the Lassen Peak eruptions of 1914-15, and a Chico author with a collection of family recipes.
You can listen to Nancy’s Bookshelf on Friday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 on North State Public Radio at 88.9 FM, or go to the website to listen to a podcast of past episodes. Just follow any of the links above.
