Authors are, without exception, readers, and behind every book there is... another book, and another. In this episode of the podcast, we're joined by two writers for conversations about the vital books and ideas that influence inform their own work. First, Cory Doctorow talks with B&N's Josh Perilo about his recent novel of an imagined near future, Walkaway, and the difference between a dystopia and a disaster. Then we hear from Will Schwalbe, talking with Miwa Messer, about the lifetime of reading behind his book Books for Living: Some Thoughts on Reading, Reflecting, and Embracing Life.
