Wired for Books - mp3s

Collections of author interviews by Don Swaim (For many years, most of the best writers of the English language found their way to Don Swaim's CBS Radio studio in New York. The one-on-one interviews typically lasted 30 to 45 minutes and then had to be edited down to a two-minute radio show. Wired for Books is proud to make these important oral documents publicly available for the first time in their entirety. Listen to the voices of many of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Visit the Wired for Books Don Swaim Page.) is just one of the great resources found on Wired for Books supported by Ohio University. 

Lectures - Short Stories - Poetry - Dramatic Readings - Kids' Corner (featuring stories of Beatrix Potter) most read by the authors!  You can even hear The Iliad - Book I by Homer  read in ancient Greek by Stanley Lombardo.

With the expansion of mp3 players across the spectrum of learners, sites like this are invaluable to educators and even the general public.
