Listening to Literature

  • Every Fridays, 12:05pm1:00pm

In his “Writer’s Credo,” Edward Abbey wrote “that words count, that writing matters, that poems, essays, and novels—in the long run—make a difference.” Abbey’s politics aside, the written word, whether fiction or nonfiction, educational or entertainment, holds a special place in our cultural histories, our communities, and our personal lives. Through interviews with authors, both local and remote, analysis with experts, and reviews of books, Listening to Literature explores literature of the present and the past.
