Tune in to Summer Reads today at 1 PM east, 10 AM west to listen in on conversations between your host Cary Barbor and your favorite authors about their new books. We’ll take you inside the bestseller list and help you decide which great read to throw in your beach bag.
On today’s show, we welcome Karen Thompson Walker, author of the literary hit of the summer, The Age of Miracles, the story of what happens when the earth's rotation starts to slow down. Also joining us will be novelist Maggie Shipstead to discuss Seating Arrangements, which chronicles a three-day New England wedding that is not as idyllic as it seems. And Matthew Batt will tell us about renovating a crackhouse, which he describes in his memoir, Sugarhouse.
We’ll be sending a prize pack of all these books to two listeners. All you have to do is tell us what you are reading this summer. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @martharadio.
