Insight: Heads You Lose / Picnic Day / Harvey Milk Book / Todd Clouser


"Heads You Lose" New York Times bestselling author Lisa Lutz and David Hayward are co-authors of "Heads You Lose," an original and hilarious new tag-team crime novel. In 2009, Lisa Lutz, came up with an intriguing idea. She invited poet - and onetime boyfriend - David Hayward to collaborate with her in writing "Heads You Lose." Lutz would write odd-numbered chapters, and Hayward the even ones. Neither could undo any plot developments the other had established. The Bay Area authors are on a book tour and will be in Sacramento tonight. You'll meet them and hear their story.

Picnic Day A popular spring gathering at UC Davis is undergoing a bit of a change this year, as organizers attempt to reign in the increasingly rowdy event. Picnic Day, UC Davis' open house and one of the largest student-run events in the nation, is this weekend. We'll talk about the changes they've made and why they made them with Charlie Colato, Chair of Picnic Day and UC Davis student, and Gary Sandy, Director of Local Government Relations for UC Davis.

Harvey Milk Day Angela Luna is the author of the book "In Celebration of Harvey Milk". The book offers educators materials to teach about Harvey Milk and provides support and instructional materials that cultivate compassion and understanding for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people in the community.

Todd Clouser Guitarist Todd Clouser will be in Sacramento on Friday for a show at Beatnik Studios. The young, genre-defying guitarist, composer and writer plays across the modern jazz and rock spectrum. You'll meet him and hear some of his music.
