Saturdays have a new meaning for me. I look forward to listening to “The Literary Life” podcast, hosted by Mitchell Kaplan, owner of Books & Books, a chain of bookstores in and around the Miami area.
The greatest plus for me is that each podcast provides information about every aspect of the book industry. From running a bookstore, to getting your book published, The Literary Life takes you behind the scenes of how it all gets done.
I love listening to Mitchell, a well-known figure in the literary field, because his interviews with authors and publishers, reveal so much. I’ve listed his recent interviews below. The most recent one, with publisher Johnny Temple, talks about the book fairs in Miami and Brooklyn. You hear about how they got started, and why they are so successful.
In case you haven’t heard, bookstores are in vogue again. Real estate developers have recently admitted that book stores attract lots of foot traffic to their shopping areas, and readers are anxious to browse the aisles again.
Many of us have always fantasized about being a famous author, or a book store owner. The Literary Life gets you closer to your dream.
Produced by Revolver Podcasts, you can listen each week with Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and iHeartMedia.
