The November selection for the Radio Bookclub is Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics, and Place. Writers Pam Houston and Amy Irvine, who had never met, developed a relationship as pen-pals during the COVID-19 pandemic when they began a letter correspondence chronicling their own experiences.
As the numbers of infected and dead rose and the nation split dangerously over the crisis, Houston and Irvine found their letters to one another nearly as necessary as breath.
This edition of the Radio Bookclub with Pam Houston and Amy Irvine was broadcast on KGNU at 9am on Thursday, November 26th.
Listen to more of our conversation with authors Pam Houston and Amy Irvine in our Afterhours podcast-only edition of the Radio Bookclub.
The Radio Bookclub is a collaboration between KGNU and the Boulder Bookstore. Every month, Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, selects a book to inspire listeners to read along together. The author will then join us in-studio for a discussion that airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 9am.
