At 9:30 we’ll play a brief interview with Kat Calvin, the founder of Spread the Vote. Click HERE to join in on her Zoom webcast Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Her group works in five states to help residents get proper ids for voting and other purposes. See spreadthevote.org.
After that we’ll have as a guest August Ventura, a devotee of the life and art of Giuseppe Verdi. He’ll explore the composer’s “enduring legacy” through an initiative he started called “27: the Verdi documentary film project”, in which he makes the case for Verdi’s twenty-seven operas as an agent of social and political change. He is in Sarasota to present a lecture-screening at the Sarasota Opera House on Thursday at 4PM.
