It’s Book Week on Smart Talk. All our programs through Thursday will focus on books—mostly talking with authors of new books.

Best-selling novelists Adriana Trigiani and John Searles, world champion debater Bo Seo and Historian David Brown are among the authors who will with us this week.

However, we start this special week Monday with a show Smart Talk features every year in the first days of summer – books that you would enjoy or find interesting while on vacation or relaxing at home.

We’re joined by our worthy panel of readers and new book experts – Catherine Lawrence, co-owner of the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg and a writer herself, Travis Kurowski, Ph.D, assistant professor of creative writing at York College of Pennsylvania, and Carolyn Blatchley, Executive Director of Cumberland County Library System.
