Slate’s Audio Book Club

Katy Waldman hosts Slate’s Audio Book Club, an engaging podcast where she facilitates monthly discussions about distinctive literary titles with expert book lovers from around the country. Recent guests have included a senior editor at Slate, an editor from the New York Times Book Review, a writer at the Atlantic, and Choire Sicha, co-founder of the popular culture site, the Awl. Discussions have ranged from wowed to perplexed to incensed to critical, but as these lovers of books have taken on such titles as Helen MacDonald’s soulful memoir, H Is for Hawk, or Paula Hawkins’ best-selling thriller, Girl on the Train, the overall mood is one of careful consideration and, above all, appreciation for the art form.
