The Looming Tower

I am very excited to have the opportunity tomorrow to interview Lawrence Wright, the author of the excellent new The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. Wright has spent four years researchingAl-Qaeda and I'm particularly interested in learning more about the financial and organization background of the terrorists. The interview should appear on afterTV next week.

Wright is coming to the Bay Area to participate in Litquake -- the 9 day literary festival. Tomorrow (Weds) night, Litquake hosts a conversation between Wright and Mark Danner (author of The Secret Way toWar: The Downing Street Memo and the Iraq War’s Buried History, and prof of journalism at U.C. Berkeley). 

Wright and Danner appear on Wednesday, October 11 at 7.00 pm at Swedish American Hall (2174 Market Street). I urge everyone to attend. It should be a great conversation between two genuine authorities on Iraq, Al-Qaeda and the war on terrorism.

Staying on the Litquake/afterTV theme, I interviewedSan Francisco writer and Litquake supporter Po Bronson last week and the interview should appearon Pajamas Media later this week.
