Bookswap with Bob Flaherty and Susan Stinson on WHMP 1400 AM radio

For a few lovely years, Bob Flaherty and Susan Stinson talked fiction once a month on WHMP 1400AM during the morning news. The segment ended when Susan stepped down as Writer in Residence at Forbes Library, but you can listen to audio samples below.

Selected Works

Novels
From Small Beer Press! "Like Jonathan Edwards, Stinson reads the natural world as well as Scripture, searching for meaning. But instead of the portents of an angry god, what she finds there is something numinous, complicated, and radiantly human." -Alison Bechdel
Single minded, indomitable Carline is on a fast bus to Texas. This is one ride you won't want to miss." -Alison Smith
I can think of no-one who writes with more love, passion, and precision about the pleasures of the body and the pleasures of the soul, and that nebulous intersection of body and soul.-Elizabeth McCracken
Susan Stinson's first novel is full of big, beautiful language and her main character, Char, is one of the best teenaged heroines I've ever met.-Judith Katz
