The Bookcast Club // Episode 8


Welcome to episode 8, where Alice and I chat recent and current reads, and share our thoughts on the Women's Prize for Fiction long list as well as our plans for the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival. After a two month break we certainly had a lot to talk about. If you have any questions or ideas for future episodes please contact us on Twitter @bookcastclub or by email.
