A Fantastic Chicago Perspective on the Literary Community
This show delves deeper into both local and international authors, asking pertinent and enlightening questions about their work and how they came to publish their work. I recommend this show to any bookworms who want to add more meaningful novels to their collections, while also learning more about the people who wrote them. Also, the live shows are a blast to attend!!
A Great Conversation with Writers
Eye 94 is the rare show about books where the hosts are prepared—having read and thought about their guest's work—but also down to earth and unpretentious. No jargon, art speak, or academese here; just three guys having a talk about books.
