Books on the Nightstand published our final episode in July 2016. This is a place for listeners to find old episodes. 

I'm sorry that we don't have show notes for all of the episodes, and that the episodes do not have consistent filenames. Still, we hope you find that the content is valuable enough to overlook those annoyances.

Thank you to all who have listened to BOTNS over the years and for those who are just discovering the podcast.

 This week we present the first two author talks from Booktopia:Oxford, recorded live at Off Square Books in Oxford, MS on June 16, 2012. 

First up is Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. Tom chose to read a short story called Alaska,  from his collection Poachers. I loved this story, and Poachers was one of my Booktopia purchases.

Suzanne Marrs is the official biographer of Eudora Welty and author of What there is to Say we have Said: The Correspondence of Eudora Welty and William Maxwell. Suzanne tells a delightful story that also involves William Faulkner; a fitting story to tell in Faulkner's hometown of Oxford.

I hope you enjoy these talks as much as we did. It's not quite the same as being there, and you are missing the many delights of Square Books (including Green Tea Bourbon Punch), but it's a fun little taste of our Booktopia weekend.
