Titlepage: Long Form Book Talk

filed under: books

Titlepage is a new online book discussion show. Each episode lasts roughly an hour, featuring multiple authors and high production values. Its producer says:

"You should not have to live in New York City or pay $150 to hear your favorite authors talk about their work. You can be having dinner in Gillette, Wyoming or Oxford, Mississippi and enjoy a great hour of conversation."

Odile Isralson,
Executive Producer

Titlepage is now showing its third episode, featuring:

David Hajdu, author of Ten-Cent Plague about the history of comics;
Mary Roach, author of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex;
Louis Masur, author of The Soiling of Old Glory; and
David Gilmour, author of The Film Club (which sounds fun -- it's a memoir about how Gilmour allowed his son to drop out of school in the tenth grade if he promised to watch three films a week with his father).

The Titlepage site also features an excellent blog covering all thinks bookish and a fledgling discussion board ready for new viewers. Have a look!
