Lisa Phillips

The Regulator Bookshop–Something of a radio junkie, State University of New York professor Lisa Phillips took her first post-collegiate job working at a station in rural Iowa at 4:30 each morning. She’s carried that enthusiasm and dedication with her, working at six stations in five states over her career and now sharing her analysis of and attraction with radio to her SUNY students. Her new book, Public Radio: Behind the Voices, offers thorough interviews with some of radio’s most celebrated personalities–Cokie Roberts, Nina Totenberg, Nic Harcourt, Marian McPartland. She gives a free 2 p.m. talk.


Art in Motion Festival

The Goathouse Gallery–Looking for a few new names in modern dance? It’s two weeks until American Dance Festival reconvenes, but Italian sculptor and Chatham County transplant Siglinda Scarpa has invited dancers/choreographers Cinzia Fiaschi and Cristina Mazzoni and musician Dario Arcidiacono from the old country to fuse disciplines in an outdoor performance at Scarpa’s studio at 680 Alton Alston Road, today at 2 p.m. and tomorrow at 11 a.m. Sounds like an excursion to remember. Pay what you will. Call 542-6815 for details. –Byron Woods
