Title Details

Join the World Book Club and listen to the globeā€™s great authors discuss their best known works of literature. The BBC's Harriett Gilbert has been hosting this monthly radio show since 2002 with over 200 podcast episodes on the feed, interviewing winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Booker Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, and many other renowned authors from around the world. The format of the show includes brief readings of the book from the author along with questions about the book that the author answers.
