Celebrated authors discuss their work, politics, morals, and the future of American society
"Exploring, illuminating, defining" --The New York Times
Writers give voice to the thoughts, dreams, and discontents of our times in these selections from the Peabody Award-winning PBS series. Join Bill Moyers as he engages 13 celebrated literary figures—“people with ideas and vision and insight” (The New York Times)—in wide-ranging conversations about life, art, and contemporary issues. Participants include Nobel Prize winners Toni Morrison and Nadine Gordimer, sharing their thoughts on moral imagination in storytelling; pioneering journalist and novelist Tom Wolfe, discussing Wall Street and neighborhood politics; and acclaimed writer and thinker Isaac Asimov, talking about science and social change.
Hailing from six nations and representing literary forms from poetry to performance, these gifted artists offer thought-provoking perspectives on the human condition that are both uniquely personal and universally relevant.
In a broadcasting career spanning nearly 40 years, journalist Bill Moyers distinguished himself at Newsday, NBC, CBS, and PBS. His many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy® and Peabody awards.
