Welcome back to Papercuts, our monthly books podcast hosted by Louisa Kasza, Jenna Todd and Kiran Dass.
On this month’s Papercuts, Jenna, Kiran and Louisa hold an experiment to see what it is like to drink a bottle of prosecco whilst recording. We observe the Booker Longlist and delve into a bunch of NZ trade news, including the NZ Booksellers Conference, Industry Awards and Coalition for Books. As always, we review what we’ve been reading and chat about what’s on the reading pile too. Settle in!
Thanks to The Spinoff and the Mātātuhi Foundation for their support.
