Renee Montagne

We are happy to announce that Renee Montagne, the Los Angeles based co-host of NPR’s Morning Edition will be interviewing Steve Inskeep at our Live  Talks Los Angeles event on October 24th, at Track 16 at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.

Inskeep’s upcoming book explores how rural-to-urban migration has transformed one of the world’s most intriguing places, the booming commercial center of Pakistan.  Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi looks at the perils and possibilities of one of the most rapidly growing metropolises in the world.  Despite the violence that frequently consumes Karachi, Inskeep finds remarkable signs of the city’s tolerance, vitality, and thriving civil society—from a world-renowned ambulance service to a socially innovative project that helps residents of the vast squatter neighborhoods find their own solutions to sanitation, health care, and education.
