Time to Navigate Uncharted Waters: Radio Readers Book Club's 2019 Fall Read Starts in August

Aug 1, 2019

Just a reminder that HPPR's Radio Readers Book Club's 2019 Fall Read starts in August. The theme is "Navigating Uncharted Waters —Past, Present, & Future." Book leaders and texts were selected by HPPR Radio Readers Steering Committee, and they all explore the ways in which our childhood and life experiences inform our world views. Are we products of nature or nurture? Many intriguing questions will be explored. 

Here are the books to be discussed during the Fall Read of 2019:

News of the World ………………………………………(Paulette Jiles)

Where the Dead Sit Talking…………………………(Brandon Hobson)

Educated—A Memoir………………………………… (Tara Westover)

Homo Deus—A Brief History of Tomorrow…(Yuval Noah Harari)

Read along or just enjoy listening to weekly BookBytes heard weekdays at 7:45 a.m. CST during Morning Edition and again at 6:45 p.m. CST during All Things Considered. Plus, don't miss our on-air, live book discussion on  Sunday, November 10.
