All Sides Weekend: Books



Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.” This hour of All Sides Weekend features three rare intellects, and we’ll take Emerson’s advice to heart and find out what’s on their reading lists. Plus, we’ll learn about book collecting from a well-known local dealer, and hear more from the author of a new book of essays about dreams.
