Michael Krasny

KQED Forum: 30 Years of Conversation, Culture and Community
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 7:30pm

KQED’s acclaimed, award-winning daily call-in news and public affairs program “Forum” marks three decades on the air this year. On Tuesday, September 12, join hosts Michael Krasny and Mina Kim for a special live anniversary show at SFJAZZ in San Francisco.

We’ll celebrate the program’s rich history and hear stories from Michael Krasny’s nearly 25 years hosting Forum. The show will also feature a conversation with author Salman Rushdie and a live performance by musicians Zakir Hussain and Joshua Redman, among other special guests.

Use code Forum30 for 10% off this one night only event.

Mr. Rushdie and Mr. Krasny will be signing copies of their books THE GOLDEN HOUSE, a powerful, timely story of love and terrorism, loss and reinvention, set in New York City against the backdrop of modern American politics, and LET THERE BE LAUGHTER, a treasury of great Jewish humor and what it all means. Books Inc. will contribute partial proceeds to KQED.

KQED Forum: 30 Years of Conversation, Culture and Community is proudly supported by Marin Community Foundation, Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP and Stanford Continuing Studies.
