Literary Landscape
Thursday December 14th, 2017 with Kate Hunt
Jólabókaflóð - The Christmas Book Flood (feat. Matt Moore and Brandon Crilly)

Jólabókaflóð is Icelandic for "The Christmas Book Flood," when all the publishers release their new books. So, to have an excuse to say "Jólabókaflóð" on the radio, Kate gets together with Matt Moore and Brandon Crilly for a talk about books we've been reading and would recommend for holiday reading or giving. Short stories, nonfiction, even wordless books (and bonus Shakespeare!)
No music, just book nerds nerding about books. . .
