Critiquing Books, From Both Sides Of The Page


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?

  • 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
