Your Call 060308 Author Russell Banks on America

As the empire crumbles, is there still an American project? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Russell Banks, author of 16 novels, most recently The Reserve, who has published his first non-fiction collection. In Dreaming Up America, Banks takes a novelists eye to colonial America to find the root of the dreams and obsessions that bind us together today. Do the aspirations in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution still call Americans to action? It's Your Call with me, Ben Temchine and you.

Russell Banks, acclaimed American novelist. His latest book is entitled Dreaming Up America.
