In the literary world, the book critics seem have all the power when your labor of love hits the shelves. But what would authors say if they could sit in the power seat?

On Thursday's Up to Date, we talk about critical process works and look at book reviews from both sides of the page.

Guests:

  • John Freeman, former president of the National Book Critics Circle
  • Whitney Terrell, distinguished writer-in-residence for New Letters on the Air at the University of Missouri-Kansas City
