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 final two talks from our BooktopiaVT Celebration of Authors: Madeline Miller,Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles, and Howard Frank Mosher, author of The Great Northern Express.

I'm just back from Booktopia Oxford. My brain is full from all of the wonderful bookishness of the weekend, and my clothes are tight from all of the amazing Southern fried food!     

Madeline Miller, whose novel  The Song of Achilles won the prestigious Orange Prize, discussed writing the book (including the decision to include the Gods in her tale), and the importance of teachers, both in her book and in her life.

The wonderfully charming Howard Frank Mosher, author, most recently, of The Great Northern Express, recounted the very moment and the very story that made him realize his stories would chronicle life in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.
