For 20 years, award–winning journalist Krasny has been bringing lively, intelligent discussion of public affairs, literature and the arts to listeners around the Bay Area and the nation. The host of KQED Public Radio’s “Forum,” Krasny has interviewed an astonishing number of notable figures who have passed through San Francisco, including Jimmy Carter, Cesar Chavez, Noam Chomsky, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Francis Ford Coppola, Don DeLillo, Newt Gingrich, Al Gore, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison, Barack Obama, Rosa Parks, Nancy Pelosi, Robert Redford, Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, John Updike and many more. To mark Krasny’s 20-year milestone at KQED, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee even declared February 15, 2013 “Michael Krasny Day.” Join us for an event commemorating Krasny’s distinguished career, with stories about his favorite interviews and most memorable moments, both on and off mike.
