On Thursday, Oct. 18, KPFA Radio 94.1 FM and Marcus Books will present “Taking the Arrow Out of the Heart: an Evening with Alice Walker,” hosted by Nina Serrano.

Whether she’s urging us to preserve this earthly paradise or to simply behold the necessity of beauty to the spirit, Walker constantly encourages us to honor the divine that lives within each of us.

She is a revolutionary poet, as always bearing witness to our troubled times, yet revealing the solid grounds for inspiration and hope.

“Taking the Arrow Out of the Heartzzz’ is bilingual, with opposing pages in English and Spanish expressing the author’s love of both people and both cultures, drawing them closer together rather than following the president’s terrible example of forcing us apart.
