Some good listening

Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge has an hour-long program this week on libraries, books and reading. Interviewed are Maryanne Wolfe, author of “Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain” (which has some pessimistic things to say about the internet); Geraldine Brooks, who talks about the rare Sarajevo Haggadah; Alberto Manguel, who talks about his personal library and his relationship with libraries; and Susan Hirschmann, who talks about children’s books and children’s book authors. The show is available online.
