‘NPR’s Book of the Day’ Podcast Debuts Today

PRESS RELEASE · Washington DC, United States ·

Starting Wednesday, September 29, listeners will be able to find NPR’s best book interviews in one podcast feed.

NPR’s Book of the Day is a daily quick listen: author interviews that illuminate the ideas and issues of our time, and literary conversations curated from NPR’s archive. The podcast will offer a mix of genre fiction, literary fiction and nonfiction, as well as showcase interviews with authors of color and female writers.

"Whether you check in with us every day or save up episodes to binge on the weekend, we hope NPR’s Book of the Day will help you find a new book to love -- or help you convince your friends you’ve already read that big book they’re buzzing about -- all in the same time it takes to make a cup of coffee,” said Petra Mayer, NPR culture desk books editor.
