LOUIE TODAY: Woodstock; The Book Babe; and Rwanda
Carlton A. Sears and "The Book Babe" — Janet Loew, of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County will chat today with Louie, Vindy.com's news radio partner, and share a progress report on the two new area libraries.
Then get ready for a walk on the wild side as Louie chats talks with Elliot Tiber about that concert on Max Yasgur's New York state farm — Woodstock.
Tiber is the man who gave the original permit to hold the now famous music and arts festival on his milkman Yasgur's property in Bethel, New York State, in the summer of 1969. And he's penned "Taking Woodstock/ A True Story of a Riot, a Concert, and a Life" to tell about his path to the event that changed his life, and made history; a film, based on his story, is set for release next year, for the concert's 40th anniversary.
Also, Irwin Kula will return to the show after a trip to Rwanda, sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative. He went with a group of leading scientists, film, healthcare and business people. (He was the “spiritual” guy.) The group met with President Kagame and probed several themes, including genocide and the ongoing poverty of that nation.
