The Knox Writers’ House documents a literary field-recording road trip of sorts. Three enthusiasts drive across the country, interviewing and recording readings by writers along the way. They’ve made dozens of mp3s and transcripts (along with crude line-drawing portraits) available on a map that plots their route. They’ve mostly stuck to the Midwest thus far, but have ventured to the Northeast, West, and South, and New Orleans is one of the stops with the most content. The Knox folks talked with John Biguenet, Nicole Cooley, Mark Yakich, Andy Young, Michael J. Lee, Anne Giselson, and others, and their website features audio of them reading their own and others’ work. Check it out here.

“Now that the Times-Picayune and the weekly newspapers have cut all but the most perfunctory book coverage, Press Street’s blog, Room 220, is the only place to find serious (and also irreverent) discussion of literature in New Orleans.” — New York Review of Books
