"A Conversation With" Award-winning Journalist Michael Krasny, Ph.D
Michael Krasny, distinguished author, educator, and host of the long-running, award-winning program Forum produced by KQED, will appear in an engaging on-stage 75 minute conversation to benefit WriterCoach Connection. The program will be moderated by noted poet, travel writer and novelist Linda Watanabe McFerrin. Prior to the conversation, a "Meet the Author" reception will be available to a limited number of advance ticket holders.
Founded in 2001, WriterCoach Connection has sent thousands of trained volunteer coaches into East Bay middle and high school classrooms to work one-on-one with more than 28,000 students. This year, over 600 volunteers are working with every student in the 70 classrooms we serve, supporting teachers assignments and, for older students, assisting with college readiness needs such as personal statements and college entrance test preparation.
