Cover to Cover Open Book - April 14, 2006

We honor award winning producer, Susan Stone and commemorate the centennial anniversary of the S.F. Earthquake and our programming with a encore presentation of "Rip, Rift and Panic."

KPFA continues to commemorate the centennial anniversary by bringing you part two of the documentary "The City Will Rise"

THE CITY WILL RISE delves deeply into the little-known stories of the landowners, the press lords, the cultural, political and military leaders and the ethnic minorities of the time, and their responses to one of history's greatest natural disasters. The theme of the documentary is "lessons learned and lessons lost," and producer Jesse Boggs takes the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake Centennial as his cue to examine our responses to contemporary disasters of equal magnitude: the Twin Towers attacks of September 11, 2001, and the onslaught of Hurricane Katrina in the fall of last year. The emphasis remains on storytelling throughout--not statistics. Boggs wants to re-acquaint us with what is most basic in these horrific events: the irrepressible human urge--with all its costs and all its rewards--to build again, regardless of the extent of the devastation.
