(End of) Summer Reading List 2021

2021-Summer-Reading-Blog-960x640 copy.jpeg

With the end of this strange summer upon us, what should thoughtful people be reading?

As some parts of our lives return to some kind of normal, Josh and Ray ask authors and philosophers about what's been on their summer reading lists.

  • Cory Doctorow on "Making Hay," his short story in Make Shift: Dispatches from the Post-Pandemic Future
  • Helen de Cruz from Saint Louis University, co-editor of Philosophy and Science Fiction Stories: Exploring the Boundaries of the Possible

Plus Michaela Bronstein from the Stanford English deparment on Richard Wright's recently-published The Man Who Lived Underground. Sunday, September 5 at 11 am.

Devon Strolovitch studied medieval Judeo-Portuguese manuscripts and earned a PhD in Linguistics from Cornell University before coming to KALW. He is the Senior Producer of Philosophy Talk, and since 2007 has hosted Fog City Blues, the weekly digest of Blues in the Bay Area and beyond.
