Let us Now Praise "Reading with Robin"

Writers need all the pr they can get, and when there is a friendly, smart and uber passionate reader behind the pr, it's even better. Case in point, Robin Kall , the creator and host of Reading with Robin, a WHJJ Providence, RI radio talk show devoted to authors, readers, and their favorite--and not so favorite--books.

Launched in 2002, every week Robin has great guests on and invites listeners to call in with comments and questions--and she gives away books! She's had guests such as Alice Hoffman, Jodi Picoult, David Baldacci, and me, me, me!

Being on Robin's show was wonderful--an event so special to me that we became friends afterwards. Robin also is on the Board of Directors of Reading Across Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Center for the Book, and is the guest at book club meetings throughout the state. And she fights against breast cancer with "walking with Robin," a team that was one of the top fundraisers the past few years.

Check out Robin's wonderful website and blog and listen in for some fabulous book talk.

Yay for Robin! There are so few radio shows that interview authors these days, and a smart interview host is wonderful - let's us fans eavesdrop on a good conversation.
