Not quite done with your summer reading list? Neither are we. This week, host Christopher Purdy and his bookish minions gather to discuss what’s new in the literary world. We’ll get their picks and hear what’s got you reading by candlelight as the days get shorter or when the power goes out. We’ll also learn about all the great stuff coming up at Thurber House.

Guests

  • Kassie Rose, WOSU Book Critic
  • Kevin Griffith, poet, Professor of Creative Writing Capital University
  • Suzanne Jaffee of the Thurber House

    I highly recommend British author, Kate Atkinson. I read Life After Life and then picked up Case Histories that is an earlier book. Just finished Behind The Scenes at the Museum. I laughed out load in some spots. Happy reading, Ellen Rogers

    Not that I’m not delighted to listen to the entire book segment again,
    but a list of title discussed would be a nice addition here.

    What was the title of the book by the Ohio author who died in 1964? A woman read the last sentence on the air and it was marvelous. I want to read it but I don’t have any idea what book it was. Can anyone help? Email is keith.w.dodge@gmail.com. Thank you! Great program!
