FEATURE
Late last month, the Indiana Department of Health issued a declaration allowing the state’s first ever long-term needle exchange program. The program in Scott County is intended to slow the spread of HIV there. Needle exchanges have been outlawed in Indiana for decades. Many in state government, including Governor Mike Pence, have long opposed the programs. That changed somewhat earlier this year, when Pence approved a month-long needle exchange in Scott County to deal with the unprecedented HIV outbreak there. Now that the state legislature has passed a law allowing the program to stay in place for at least a year, there is still debate in Indiana over the use of needle exchanges. WFHB correspondent Kara Tullman has that story.

Needle Exchange Program draws criticism from Indiana Prosecutors

Books Unbound – The Life Of Lazarillo de Tormes, Part 1

Play

The Life Of Lazarillo de Tormes, His Fortunes and Misfortunes is a classic of Spanish literature, written anonymously and one of only six novels on the Index of Prohibited Books during the Inquisition. Lazaro is a clueless but sly servant boy who learns to survive a series of abusive masters through trickery and petty crime. The original book was controversial mainly for its satire of Catholicism and the clergy, and the version available to modern readers is an edition censored for re-publication. A sequel that was critical of the political power structure remained banned.

Written in the 16th century, Lazarillo is an early example of the picaresque novel, episodic fiction in which a roguish protagonist evades conventional authority and navigates a series of predicaments. Novelist Jane Smiley calls Lazaro the first protagonist in fiction to represent the ordinary person whose primary concern is eking out a living. Set mostly in Toledo, Spain, the novella is also notable for its depiction of poverty amid the anti-poor laws enacted during the period, and the changing attitudes toward charity in an increasingly capitalist society.

Excerpted from the translation of Robert S. Rudder, the Books Unbook presentation of The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes is newly expanded two-part program from a version first broadcast in the fall of 2014 as part of a series on classic satiric fiction. Tony Brewer is the reader, Sarah Torbeck the host, and Berklea Going the announcer.

The episode was written and produced by Cynthia Wolfe, with production assistance from Robert Shull and Doug Storm.

Lazarillo features period music by the 16th-century Spanish composer Diego Ortiz, who was born in Toledo, performed by Jordi Savali on his albums La Folia and Recercadas del Trattado de Glosas. Books Unbound theme music by The Impossible Shapes.

Broadcast on MCCSC Commencement day, the episode concludes with the poem “The Writer” by Richard Wilbur, read by Cynthia Wolfe and dedicated to the Class of 2015.

Interchange – Creating the Subject: Hildegard Keller’s Annemarie Mahler

Play

Host Doug Storm is joined by literary critic, author, and filmmaker, Hildegard Elisabeth Keller, who teaches German literature at Indiana University and at the University of Zurich.

Keller’s most recent project, the film Whatever Comes Next, is a documentary about Bloomington painter and scholar Annemarie Mahler. Born in Vienna in 1926, Mahler fled by herself as a twelve-year child to the United States and since 1955 has lived in Bloomington, IN, and in the summers in Woods Hole, MA.

The documentary portrays the artist’s outer and inner lives, which bridge two centuries and two continents.

A major theme of the film and the interview is identity, particularly that of the immigrant and the artist. Keller also discusses her projects on Mystics like Meister Eckhart and Hildegard of Bingen, as well as her “muse,” the modernist Argentine poet Alfonsina Storni, of whom she is writing a biography due out in November.

Special thanks to Hildegard Keller for letting us hear parts of her film in this program. Ann Malcolm reads excerpts from the writings of Annemarie Mahler. Music in the film is by composer Olav Lervik and cellist Ivan Turkalj.

Sonia Velazquez read Alfonsina Storni’s “Voy a Dormir.”

Music
“Alfonsina y el Mar” by Mercedes Sosa
