“A novel is a great act of passion and intellect, carpentry and largess,” writes Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline and other best-sellers. Now Conroy writes about the books that shaped him, the books in which he found solace, the books that made him want to become a writer, the books he says saved his life. It’s called My Reading Life.
Then, Peter Sokolowski is the Editor-at-Large for Merriam-Webster where he is responsible for the Word of the Day. He’ll discuss the most looked-up words of the year, why they’re noteworthy, and their historical meaning. [Broadcast Date: December 29, 2010]
