Series: BookD Podcast (6)
Downloadable audio file
BookD offers a fascinating perspective into the world of publishing. Listen to authors discuss their inspiration behind their books, and hear the story of how these books were transformed from the initial concept. Tune in every other week for conversations with the stars of literature, art, film, music, science and politics. BookD leaves our fine capital for the day and ventures out to the Hay Festival where we endeavor to go undercover and get a flavour of the literary event which is set amongst the beautiful countryside of the Brecon Beacons. We talk to one of our favourite authors Gareth Malone who tells us about his book tour since we last spoke to him a couple of months ago on BookD. We also sneak into a book event where the Telegraph cartoonist MATT discusses his archive of cartoons and what it feels like to be part of a news room. And finally our search for a certain blonde book presenter becomes rather popular with my side kick for the day...This really is an episode not to missed!
