Celebrating World Book Day: A New Collaboration with New Books Network

This World Book Day, we are excited to announce a special collaboration with New Books Network, a consortium of author-interview podcast channels dedicated to public education. Together, we're launching two unique podcasts that celebrate the rich diversity of languages and the power of books to provoke thought and dialogue.

A Tribute to Shakespeare and the English Language

Our first podcast, "Christian Shakespeare: Question Mark," and interview with the editors Michael Scott and Michael J. Collins, delves into the intriguing intersections of religion and the works of William Shakespeare. This episode offers a unique exploration of how Christian themes are interwoven with the author's storytelling and characters, providing listeners with a fresh perspective on some of the most famous literary works in the English language. Designed to coincide with the celebration of both World Book Day and Shakespeare Day, this podcast will captivate Shakespeare enthusiasts and new listeners alike.

A Voice for Spanish Language and Social Issues

The second podcast, "Tomar la palabra. Islamofobia y participación política después del 15-M," shifts the focus to contemporary issues in the Spanish-speaking world. This episode discusses the impact of Islamophobia on political participation in Spain following the significant social movement known as 15-M. Through expert interviews and engaging discussions, the podcast sheds light on how minority groups have used their voices in political arenas and the ongoing challenges they face. This is a must-listen for anyone interested in social justice, political activism, and the Spanish language.

Join Us in Celebrating Language and Literature

Both podcasts are available now on New Books Network and are part of our broader initiative to celebrate linguistic diversity and the enduring impact of literature in our lives. We invite listeners around the globe to tune in and join us in honoring World Book Day. Through these podcasts, we hope to foster a greater appreciation for literary arts and encourage discussions that bridge cultures and communities. Share your thoughts, insights, and discussions on social media, and don't forget to tag us and New Books Network. Let's make this World Book Day a memorable one, filled with the joy of learning, understanding, and celebrating the power of words.
