You can't keep a good woman down / Alice Walker ; interviewed by Karla Tonella.

Alice Walker (1944 - ) is primarily known as a novelist and short story writer, and is a major figure in both Black American and Feminist literature. In the first part of this program Walker reads a story from her new book "You Can't Keep A Good Woman Down" at the Woman's Building in San Francisco -- "Fame," a humorous story about a cantakerous older Black woman writer who is about to receive her 111th major award. Karla Tonella, who conducted the interview with Walker woven throughout the program, reads two of Walker's short stories: "A Letter of the Times" and "Coming Apart." The second part of the program continues Tonella's interview with Walker, and also features a recording Walker reading her story "The abortion," a powerful story that left its audience in stunned silence, at A Woman's Place bookstore in Oakland. In the interview segments, Walker talks about some of her characters, her own relocation from Atlanta to San Francisco, why she incorporates history and politics into her work, her favorite writers, her own creative struggle, and what she's working on now. Mixed with music. Contains some sensitive language.
