This week on Bibliocracy, Wednesday at 8 pm on KPFK, a special celebratory show with Heyday founder and publisher Malcolm Margolin, on the occasion of his retirement from that iconic non-profit publishing house, the go-to source for books and more on Native California, flora and fauna, art and human and non-human culture for forty years.  Margolin is also the collaborator with and subject of a terrific biography titled The Heyday of Malcolm Margolin, a book which tells his story and that of Heyday, arguably the same thing.  A visionary, activist, raconteur, booster and intellectual provocateur, his DIY economic model has charmed, engaged, persuaded and delighted writers, editors and readers across many California communities and beyond. In this interview, recorded live at the summer Community of Writers at Squaw Valley (CA), Margolin reflects and explains and, as always, asks questions and wonders and tells jokes and digresses, his familiar modus operandi for living a full, rich, generous and curious life. Check out the Heyday – Into California website, where you will find more history of Heyday, news about current projects and, yes, the outfit’s impressive books catalog.  Special thanks to Community of Writers Executive Director Brett Hall Jones and the CoW staff.  Listen to Bibliocracy live on the radio or online, or anytime you like as a free download from the station’s audio archives.  Support people’s radio with a donation today.
