Since 1980, City Arts & Lectures has been bringing leading authors, artists, and other luminaries to the Herbst Theater in San Francisco -- and to public radio listeners across the country. Now, the series has its own very own home: The Nourse Theatre, a 1693-seat former school auditorium closed to the public for over 30 years. We talk with founder and director Sydney Goldstein about the new Civic Center space and about her vision for the future of City Arts.
