The scholar John Rodden calls the literary interview a “fully-fledged genre.” I used to be skeptical of this idea—what makes asking an author about her work different than, say, a ballerina? But after assigning my students at The College of Saint Rose to speak with an author about his or her work, I’m more inclined to think the literary interview qualifies as a distinct form of performance. I put out a call on Facebook and Twitter for people who have books coming out. Would you speak to a college student about your book? I asked. Sure, they said. Review copies were sent, students selected their authors, read and researched their work, and asked questions. I’ve enjoyed these performances, and I hope you do as well.
