Every month Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, selects a book to inspire the KGNU listening audience to read along together. Arsen and Maeve Conran, KGNU News Director, are then joined in studio by the author for a book discussion which airs on the 4th Thursday of the month at 9am.
Arsen Kashkashian says participating in a bookclub is a great dynamic way for readers to enjoy a book.
“I think you read a book and it’s kind of a solitary experience and once you’ve read it and immersed yourself in this world, it’s great to have somebody to bounce ideas off of.”
Read about our bookclub in the Boulder Weekly:
“The real effectiveness of the program stems from the community aspect that links people together with a common goal. Like any book club, people from various backgrounds get together to dissect their interpretations of the work.”
