Episode 6 - Ann Morgan - Reading the World Who's Next with Zara Bryson

    • Society & Culture

My guest today is Ann Morgan who was nominated by her sister-in-law (and Who's Next guest from episode 2) Lyndsay Morgan who was inspired the level of dedication that Ann shows.

Ann is a TED speaker, Royal Literary Fund fellow, author, literary activist and editor.

Her first book, 'Reading the World' is an account of her year-long journey of reading a book from every country in the world. It's a wonderful story of collaboration, compassion and cultural exploration.

Ann has also written two novels: 'Beside Myself' and 'Crossing Over' and is planning her own podcast to launch later this year for the Royal Literary Fund - so I'll share details of that closer to the time!

I found it fascinating chatting to Ann about her love of literature and experience of talking at TED and I hope you enjoy listening to it too!
