Owen Egerton

This week on Writing on the Air, we talk with author Owen Egerton about his work as a writer, teacher, and performer. We recorded this interview LIVE at KOOP.org studios on 05.28.14.

We are replaying this interview today because Owen Egerton is celebrating his 1 year anniversary show of his award winning One Page Salon on Tuesday October 7th! Every first Tuesday of the month, Owen hosts & produces One Page Salon at the Whip In in South Austin. The show goes from 7-9pm.

Our very own François Pointeau will be reading one page from a collection of short stories he is working on on One Page Salon October, as well as performing his long poem “Blueberry Hill, a dark fable” with a live band after One Page Salon around 9:15pm at the Whip In.
