Garth Stein & Mary Ann Gwinn, Writers to Reviewers
A show for readers, writers and reviewers. First author Garth Stein gives tips on navigating the world of the writer. Then some of our past guests weigh in on research, inspiration and writing styles. Finally, Mary Ann Gwinn is interviewed about life of a reviewer.
The weekly series WELL READ features lively, engaging conversations about ideas in literature. Host Terry Tazioli introduces the latest books — both fiction and non-fiction — and interviews noted authors about the themes in their latest works. This season features renowned authors Khaled Hosseini (And the Mountains Echoed), Temple Grandin (The Autistic Brain), Susan Orlean (Rin Tin Tin) and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Elizabeth Strout (The Burgess Boys). Following each interview, Seattle Times book editor Mary Ann Gwinn (former vice president of the National Book Critics Circle) joins Tazioli to further explore the literary themes of the week's book and to recommend related authors and other reading material.
