Best of 2011
What better way to end the year with our “Best of 2011” lists? It may have been a rough year for book stores, but authors and books are still a hit. We’ll talk about some of the top titles to hit the shelves this year from fiction to non-fiction to kids books and more. And talk about a banner year. Americans went to the movies more than a billion times in 2011! The Boston Globe’s Ty Burr and our own Jared Bowen are with us to discuss their personal favorites. And finally, we go from the visual to the aura, with tunes galore, as we listen to some of the best new music of the year according to author Steve Almond and NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson.
