Nimrod International Journal, founded in 1956 here at TU, is a well-respected, twice-a-year literary publication that's been dedicated to printing work by writers both emerging and established for more than half a century. Our guest is Francine Ringold, editor-in-chief of Nimrod, who describes the latest issue, which is just out now. This issue's theme is "Lasting Matters: Writers 57 and Over" --- and as Fran adds, there will be a special, free-to-the-public reading from this issue tonight (Thursday the 27th) at 7:30pm in the Meinig Recital Hall at TU's Lorton Performing Arts Center. This reading will feature local authors reading their own work as well as readings from other actors and performers; for more information --- on the new issue and/or tonight's event --- please visit the Nimrod website. Also on today's show, our commentator Connie Cronley is thinking about Agatha Christie's clever, ever-associative detective, Miss Marple --- and about several other matters that can so easily spring to mind when one thinks about Miss Marple.
