Marilynne Robinson: Home: A Novel
In conversation with Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW's BookWorm

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author returns to the locale of her novel Gilead in a moving and healing book about love, death, faith, families, and the passing of the generations.

Marilynne Robinson is the author of the novels Gilead, (FSG, 2004)—winner of the Pulitzer Prize—and Housekeeping (FSG, 1980), and two books of nonfiction, Mother Country (FSG, 1989) and The Death of Adam. She teaches at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Michael Silverblatt is the host and guiding spirit of KCRW's half-hour radio show "Bookworm," where he introduces listeners to new and emerging authors along with writers of renown. Silverblatt's formidable knowledge comes from close reading and analysis of a writer's entire oeuvre. Susan Sontag called him "a national treasure. A New York native, Silverblatt graduated from the State University of New York in Buffalo and later took advanced courses at Johns Hopkins. He moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1970s where he worked in motion picture public relations and script development. He created "Bookworm" for KCRW-FM in 1989
