On March 16, 2014, Kate Sullivan interviews Johnny Temple, publisher and editor-in-chief of Akashic Books. He is also the chair of the Brooklyn Literary Council, which works with Brooklyn's borough president to plan the annual Brooklyn Book Festival in September.

This award-winning Brooklyn-based independent company publishes urban literary fiction and political nonfiction. The interview includes a discussion of his publication of the notorious "Go the F*** to Sleep" and "Not for Everyday Use"--a memoir by Elizabeth Nunez. Johnny Temple, an avant-garde book publisher, is known for evocative taste, for break-out books, and for his renaissance humanism regarding publishing and music. 

The WordSmitten broadcast ("About the Books") airs Sunday afternoons at 5 PM EST from NYC and features recent interviews with bestselling authors, editors, and literary executives.
