Jan. 13 'Know The Score' Broadcast Focuses On Non-Fiction

Non-fiction writing and some Iowa music will be the focus of "Know the Score LIVE!", broadcast live from the University of Iowa Museum of Art's Lasansky Gallery and the Nancy and Craig Willis Atrium from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13.

The program, part of the weekly arts and humanities series hosted by Joan Kjaer, can be heard at that time on radio station KSUI, 91.7 FM (101.7 FM in Dubuque). It will be rebroadcast on KSUI 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18. You may also listen to the broadcast on the Internet at

The broadcast will be open to the public free of charge.

During the program, nonfiction writers Bonnie Sunstein, Jeff Porter and Rebecca Sheir will read from their works, which range from personal memoir to cultural history to essays for radio.

Music will be provided by Iowa composer/performer Patrick Hazell, who has become a favorite of "Know the Score" audiences. In past appearances, Hazell has played the blues, piano improvisations and folk music from his travels to Russia, and explained his bell-ringing projects around Iowa and the world.

The University of Iowa Alumni Association is the corporate sponsor of "Know the Score LIVE!" broadcasts. Refreshments are provided by the Prairie Table.
