The University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum is a non-profit, nationally-recognized literary event. It is dedicated to showcasing renowned authors and interviewers in the Louisville community. This candid, uninterrupted hour of conversation is taped by Kentucky's public television for national distribution to PBS member stations, under the title “Great Conversations.”

Founded by Mary Moss Greenebaum in 1996 with the support of the University of Louisville Foundation, the Kentucky Author Forum has grown in scope over more than a decade, and, along the way, welcomed two additional sponsors: Brown-Forman and The Humana Foundation.

Four times each year, distinguished author guests are paired with interviewers, both steeped in the subject at hand, for an always lively, often stunning, interview. A kind of magic happens in Louisville's Kentucky Center on a set created by Bittners.

These not-to-be-missed conversations happen only once.

We hope you'll join us. And, if you'd like to be on our mail or email notice list, please contact 502-589-2884 or info@kentuckyauthorforum.com.

Each live Kentucky Author Forum interview is taped by WFPL; audios of past Forums can be found at www.wfpl.org.

Each live interview is also taped by Kentucky Educational Television (KET) for distribution to PBS member stations nationwide, where it airs as part of the series “Great Conversations.” Current tracking shows that 42% of American households have access to “Great Conversations,” with airings on 150 stations, in 66 markets, covering 28 states.

To watch recent interviews online, or to get KET airtimes, visit www.ket.org. Viewers in other parts of the country should check their local PBS listings; and, if you don't find “Great Conversations,” we hope you'll ask your local PBS station to carry it.
