Since 2010 WWNO has nourished Louisiana’s literary life with its weekly radio program, The Reading Life, hosted by Susan Larson, author of The Booklover’s Guide to New Orleans, and two-time chair of the Pulitzer Prize Jury for fiction.  Susan’s weekly interviews range widely across fiction, non-fiction, Louisiana history, and cultural topics. Her new weekly feature, BookMark, gives Morning Edition and All Things Considered listeners a highlight of the upcoming Reading Life program.
