R. Crosby Kemper III quit his post as chairman and CEO of one of the biggest banking companies in the Midwest to become head of the Kansas City, MO library system. Kemper will talk about why he took the job, the history of the library in Kansas City, library services and programs, and the upcoming "Big Read", an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts designed to revitalize the role of literary reading in American popular culture. This year the "Big Read" selection is Tobias Wolff's Old School, which will be read daily on the air on 90.1 FM KKFI this April.
