French-Cuban Author Anais Nin (1903-1977) and Rupert Pole read excerpts from her memoirs "The Diary of Anais Nin" which she began writing at the age of 11. She is also the author of "Cities of the Interior." The reading is introduced by KPFK's Frank Roberts. Roberts announces that "The Diary of Anais Nin" has recently been published by the Swallow Press in cooperation with Harcourt, Brace, and World, and the book is already in it's second edition. Based on this information and the information on the box, the recording is dated October 4, 1966, although there is no evidence of this reading in the corresponding folio.
