PHILOSOPHICAL BREAKFAST CLUB available to visually-impaired listeners on MPR

I am honored that The Philosophical Breakfast Club has been recorded by the Minnesota Radio Talking Book Network. The Radio Talking Book Network “provides access to current local and statewide newspapers, magazine articles and best-selling books, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, reaching nearly 8,000 visually-impaired listeners” and is broadcast over Minnesota Public Radio.

The volunteer who recorded The Philosophical Breakfast Club, Leila Poullada, described the book as “entrancing,” and said:

“I looked eagerly forward to each recording session. The Philosophical Breakfast Club will remain a favorite book from which I enjoyed learning.”

For a fuller discussion of the book and its recording, see here.
