Radio Bristol Book Club

With Radio Bristol Book Club, the Birthplace of Country Music and the Bristol Public Library come together each month to celebrate and explore the wonderful world of literature. The show airs the 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00pm, and the books on our reading list focus on museum content, music heritage, and Appalachian culture and stories. Your hosts Rene Rodgers, Erika Barker, or Tonia Kestner, along with volunteer readers, will dig deep into the feelings and questions raised by one selected book each month, often followed by an interview with the author.

Check out the Radio Bristol Book Club list for 2022 and read along with us each month! And if you’d like to share your thoughts or questions about the book, you can email us at (Subject line: Radio Bristol Book Club) and we’ll include them in our on-air discussion!
