Radio Bookclub Podcasts

KGNU is partnering with the Boulder Bookstore for our radio book club. Every month Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, will select a book to inspire the KGNU listening audience to read along together. We will then be joined live in studio by the author for a discussion about the book.

Arsen Kashkashian says participating in a book club 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 book club 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.”


Our September selection for the radio book club is Perfume River by Robert Olen Butler.

Olen Butler is the  author of Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain.  His latest book looks at the way the Vietnam War divided families, and a layered portrayal of marriage, brotherhood, and the sum of a life.  He will join us on Thursday September 29th at 9.00am.
