The Book Show Friday 13 November 2020

In the uncertain times in which we are living, reading has become a welcome refuge for many.  Although even the most ardent reader can be stuck for inspiration.  Each week Rick O'Shea will point you towards books and authors you may not have considered.  Expect conversation, reports, recommendations and the ever popular Book Club slot where one of the nation's book groups quizzes a writer whose work they have read for one of their recent meetings.
