    The Book Show

    Presented by Sinead Gleeson The Book Show celebrates books and the world of writing with readings, discussion, author interviews and special features

    The Book Show, presented by Sinead Gleeson, is where we get to know a bit more about the books you love and talk about what you could be reading over the next few months.

    Writers and publishers will talk stories, books and the world of writing and we’ll have readings, reports and regular items. The Book Show will bring you the best in international and Irish authors, with weekly discussions, interviews, features and literary trivia.


    If there’s anything you’d like to hear covered on the show or have any comments to make, why not get in touch bookshow@rte.ie and you’ll find us on twitter @bookshowrte and on Facebook.
