Beginning August 18, best-selling Australian author Kate Veitch joins 
us for a conversation about her second novel, "Trust," which delivers 
a lively and compelling tale of a contemporary Melbourne family thrown 
into crisis. There's love, there's strife, there's compassion, there's
angst, there's duplicity and, yes, some juicy sex. For more on Ms. Veitch 
and her work, check out her web site: http://www.kateveitch.com/

Also coming up in Inkwell.vue, starting Wednesday next week, Eric
Pooley (former Well member)will be our guest to discuss his new book ,
"The Climate War: True Believers, Power Brokers, and the Fight to Save
the Earth," 

(from his website)
In The Climate War, Eric Pooley, deputy editor of Bloomberg
Businessweek, takes us behind the scenes and into the minds of the
most important players in the struggle to cap global warming
pollution—an American civil war in which trillions of dollars and the
fate of the planet are at stake. To write this book, Pooley, the
former managing editor of Fortune and chief political correspondent for
Time, spent three years embedded with an extraordinary cast of
characters on all sides of the fight. The result is an epic narrative,
a searing exposé, and an essential read for anyone who wants to
understand the most important argument in America."

For more on Eric Pooley and his book, check out: <www.ericpooley.com>

<echodog> will be conducting the interview and we hope you all will
join in the discussion.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, for our next Inkwell
guest,  we have invited Carole Berlin, breast cancer survivor, activist
and educator, to be our guest. She will be discussing, among other
things, "What you should know before your next Mammogram." She has done
a lot of research about how chemotherapy and radiation work wtih
breast cancer and what else you can do prevent breast cancer and heal
yourself if you get it.

Two of the websites she writes for are:

www.breastcancerchoices.org
www.annieappleseedproject.org

I hope you will join the conversation, which starts on Wednesday.

Is there a calendar of what is coming up in inkwell? I can't seem to find one.
I want to tell people about the Bruce Schneier discussion coming up but have no 
place or date to which to point them.

Schneier is scheduled for Aug 30-Sept 13. 

Sorry for the delay on that.

I echo the question "is there a calendar"?

I mean, obviously there is, but why is it not posted in some form or 
other?

And with four hosts, someone might be able to find the time.

With no central headquarters for books to go in and out of, and the
fact that two of the hosts here are actually producing and conducting
the current set of interviews, it's been a bit tough of late. 

However, we have David Weinburger up next, and after him Cory Doctorow
and Charlie Stross, for their new collaboration "Empire of the Nerds."
Not sure what the Weinburger book is, to be honest. Anyway, that
carries us through Oct. 1, by which time I hope to be able to announce
a couple of others.

I assume that the new Weinberger book is the one in question - "Too Big To 
Know."

When does the Weinburger interview start? That's the book I'm reading --
it's very good. 

capt, all due respect, and I appreciate that you're at least answering, 
but there are four hosts and obviously the information exists in written 
form somewhere -- how long would it take for one of those hosts to pop the 
info into a boilerplate post every couple of weeks? It sort of used to 
happen.

Not long at all. I'm new to hosting and believe this got dropped thru
the cracks when we lost our staff. This is where we are at the moment:

David Weinberger, Too Big to Know   Sept 13 - Sept 27

Cory Doctorow/Charlie Stross, The Rapture of the Nerds  Sept 17 - Oct
1


Note that these two conversations overlap one another due to author
commitments and scheduling.

Thanks, Ted - sorry I didn't chime in before now. We're still
producing great conversations (see the latest - Doc Searls and the
current Bruce Schneier discussion). We're rocking on!

I like the tech heavy discussions.  But one after another is too much.
 Could you get some mystery writers, novelists, or authors that write
books about music into the rotation?

If we could figure out a way to distribute books, I have several of
those in mind, including a couple of Welloids. 

But how do we do the distribution?
