The 19th season of DIALOGUE premieres October 5 with an interview with Jackson Hole, Wyoming, author Alexandra Fuller in the first of four new “Conversations from the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference.”
This fall also brings a new day and time for the airing of DIALOGUE: Fridays at 8:00 p.m. MT/PT. Marcia Franklin, an award-winning producer who has worked at IdahoPTV since 1990, will be the series’ main host. She’ll focus on interviews with exceptional individuals involved in making and documenting history.
Fuller was raised in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Malawi and Zambia. Her reminiscences of growing up in war-torn Africa form the basis of two memoirs, “Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood” (2002) and “Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness” (2011). She has written two other books and for numerous magazines and newspapers.
The two discuss Fuller’s works, her life and her writing philosophy.
Since 2005, Franklin has interviewed nearly 30 authors at the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference, considered one of the most important gatherings of writers in the country.
