Through a special collaboration with 89.3 KPCC, ALOUD on the Off-Ramp extends the insightful discussions of ALOUD at Central Library to allow both audience members and listeners the unique opportunity to engage each other in an informal exchange of ideas beyond the live lecture and performance series held regularly at the Downtown Central Library.

ALOUD on the Off-Ramp will present thought-provoking questions posed by participating guests from the award-winning series. 89.3 KPCC and ALOUD at Central Library invite you to join in and respond by voicing your own opinions and viewpoints.

Presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, in association with the Los Angeles Public Library, ALOUD at Central Library presents over 75 live events a year and provides a public forum for discussion and ideas from some of today’s brightest writers, thinkers, and innovators.

On Monday, February 13, 2006, renowned scholar of American history John Hope Franklin sat down with journalist Tavis Smiley for a lively exchange on race, politics, and the future of America. Franklin, one of the most honored and decorated academics in the U.S., and professor emeritus at Duke University, has devoted his life and career to the pursuit of equality.

In his newly published book, Mirror to America: The Autobiography of John Hope Franklin, the ninety-year-old historian looks back on the events that shaped the 20th century, exploring the issues of race through his own experiences. As both a unique historical document and an intimate, revelatory personal history, Franklin’s book defies traditional categorization.

On Thursday, February 2, 2006, scholar of comparative religions and author of No God But God, Reza Aslan, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of GOD: A Biography, Jack Miles, met on the ALOUD stage for a spirited conversation on the coming reformation of Islam. Through the course of the evening’s program, Aslan and Miles discussed the troubling internal conflicts that will have a profound impact on over a billion people worldwide.

After the program, Reza Aslan posed the following question for ALOUD on the Off Ramp:

What role do you think religion should play in modern society? If a democracy is based on the values, opinions, and mores of the majority population, then is it inevitable that the religion of the majority form the moral foundation of the state? Can there even be such a thing as a "religiously based democracy?"
