LBC Welcomes KQED’s Forum on the Road to Santa Rosa

Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (LBC) announced that KQED will present Forum on the Road: Santa Rosa at the Center (50 Mark West Springs Road in Santa Rosa) on Friday, April 6, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. Forum on the Road is a new series of in-depth live broadcasts that will span across the Bay Area, celebrating the milestone of Michael Krasny’s 25th anniversary as host of Forum. For the engagement at LBC, North Bay resident and Forum’s Friday host, Mina Kim, returns to Santa Rosa six months after wildfires ravaged the area to reflect and look forward with the residents, artists, reporters, and others who are rebuilding their communities in the wake of destruction. The two-hour live event offers an inside look at how the KQED produces the daily call-in program that presents balanced discussions of local, state, national, and world issues as well as in-depth interviews with leading figures in politics, science, entertainment, and the arts.

Forum on the Road: Santa Rosa is free to attend, but registration is required. Important Note: Tickets are not available through Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. To register and ensure a general admission ticket, visit fotrsantarosa.eventbrite.com.
