The Reader Podcast: Episode Four Out Now

Written by Maisie Jeynes, 20th May 2021

'One thing about silence, is that it makes you listen

You learn what’s important'

From Eulogy for the Lost by Frank Cottrell-Boyce



In the latest episode of The Reader Podcast, we hear from two authors who have been great supporters of The Reader’s work: Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Joanne Harris.

Frank reads his Eulogy for the Lost, broadcast by Culture Liverpool and BBC Radio Merseyside in March to mark a year since the start of lockdown. Joanne Harris speaks about her novel Orfeia, about grief, loss and the power of stories, and we listen in to a National Prison Radio Shared Reading discussion of one particular story by Joanne, ‘Tea With the Birds’, in which an encounter between two strangers proves transformative.
