Participant(s) Bio
Tim Page is a professor of journalism and music at the University of Southern California. He has been a music critic at the New York Times, Newsday, and The Washington Post. In the early nineties, Page's research led to the discovery of the papers and diaries of Dawn Powell; this in turn led to the subsequent reissue of the majority of her novels. In 1998 he published a highly acclaimed biography of Powell and in 2001 he edited and annotated the Library of America's two-volume collection of her work. Page lives in Baltimore and Los Angeles.
