Ursula LeGuin was on NPR's Talk of the Nation yesterday as part of a discussion about Tolkien. For those of you interested in both - here's a link to the show:

Thanks Damelon!!! How cool to hear her voice! She sounds younger than her 74 years! But I sure wish she spoke a lot longer. Sad

She does sound younger than her age, doesn't she. Smile

I wish she was on a little longer myself. All in all though, an interesting program.
