Every episode of Book Talk focuses on one (really good) work of contemporary fiction, and features an 25-minute interview with the author and a 25-minute discussion of the book between host Cyd Oppenheimer and two guest readers. One of our local New Haven librarians rounds out our show with a middle-grade recommendation (because who doesn’t love middle-grade fiction?).
Book Talk is a production of WNHH Community Radio (103.5 FM LP), in collaboration with The New Haven Independent. It airs every other Wednesday at 1 pm. All episodes are available on this web site and iTunes.
Here’s what people are saying about Book Talk:
“Oh wow. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to hear that show. . . I am not exaggerating when I say it brought tears. I could not believe I was listening to three readers who so completely got what I was trying to do.” - Holly LeCraw, author of THE HALF BROTHER (featured on Episode 6)
“I was completely blown away by how thoughtful and deep your discussion of the book was! What a gift to be read so carefully, and then discussed with such intelligence and enthusiasm.” - Kate Racculia, author of BELLWEATHER RHAPSODY (featured on Episode 12)
