New travel/literature podcast
On December 14, 2021 In Uncategorised
A new podcast that promises to combine travel and literature, The Wandering Book Collector, is due to be launched today by the writer and broadcaster Michelle Jana Chan (see my earlier post on her novel, Song). She is planning to have conversations with writers “around themes of movement, memory, borders, longing and belonging, and home”. Her first guest is the journalist and author Janine di Giovanni, best known for her reporting of war and the politics of conflict; the second, on December 29, will be Bernardine Evaristo, winner of the Booker Prize in 2019 for her novel Girl, Woman, Other and the first black woman and black British person to receive the award in its 50-year history.
