Books Ireland News
Ruth McKee, Books Ireland editor and host of the Burning Books Ireland podcast, has been nominated as a Rising Star in the Irish Podcast Awards.
On the podcast, Ruth poses the question, ‘If your house was on fire, what books would you save from the flames?’ The podcast features authors and well known cultural figures discussing the titles that have formed the backdrop to their lives – their childhood memories perhaps, or books they fell in love with. Ruth asks each guest which books they’d save, which they’d leave behind, and what other non-book treasure they would rescue from the flames. The latest guest was the wonderful Bernie McGill – you can listen to the trailer here.
Books Ireland has the official bestsellers charts for July, as well as the latest First Flush, the fully searchable listings of all Irish-published and Irish-interest books released every month.
