Radio Bookclub: Travelers – Helon Habila

The March selection for the Radio Bookclub is Travelers, by Nigerian author Helon Habila. The novel is divided into six sections and looks at the African diaspora in Germany through the lens of the refugee crisis. The book features stories of migrants and refugees and examines what it means to be a “traveler.”

This edition of the Radio Bookclub with Helon Habila was broadcast on KGNU at 9am on Thursday, March 25th.

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.
