This is a podcast about books. Everything you can imagine, about books. Combine this with the human desire to know (Aristotle) the joy found in good conversation (Montaigne) and a wish to share the results, and you have a good idea of why I host and produce The Biblio File.

John Freeman is president of The National Book Critics Circle. Founded in 1974, the NBCC is a non-profit organization consisting of nearly 700 active book reviewers who honor quality writing and communicate with one another about common concerns.

We met recently at BookExpo in New York and talked, among other things, about the NBCC’s awards program, the blog called Critical Mass, and the Campaign to Save Book Reviews which addresses the alarming shrinkage of newspaper book review sections across North America.
