See You on the Radio

Yesterday I was on Clare Graves' BBC Scotland program "Book Cafe" to discuss the LT Legacy Libraries project. You can listen here for the next few days, should you so desire. I'm on in the first 15-minute segment, along with Thomas Wright, author of the new book Oscar's Books (on the reading habits of Oscar Wilde) and Stuart Kelly, one of Britain's best-known book journalists. It was a fun discussion, and I learned that Wilde, like Jefferson, was a big fan of the Ossian poems, which is pretty cool.
