Thank you for visiting the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum. We are in the process of updating our site, and look forward to bringing you news of upcoming Forums, as well as news of past guests.
The University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum is a non-profit, nationally-recognized literary event. Author Forum programs carefully match an author and interviewer; their hour-long candid conversation takes place before a live audience at The Kentucky Center in Louisville. The event is taped and distributed by KET, Kentucky Educational Television, and airs as the series “Great Conversations” on PBS member stations across the country.
Recent guests have included Congressman John Lewis, in conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow; Chris Matthews, with E. J. Dionne; Pat Conroy, with Maureen Corrigan. Our upcoming season will include Philippe de Montebello, with Michael Kimmelman and soprano Jessye Norman, with Gloria Steinem.
Viewers in other parts of the country should check their local PBS listings; and, if you don’t find the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum’s “Great Conversations,” we hope you’ll ask your local PBS station to carry it.
