Under normal circumstances, we get to attend literary festivals and seminars, where book enthusiasts and the like can attend and learn many things about their favorite authors, or even marvel at them as they read aloud their works or perform spoken word poetry on stage. Unfortunately, the pandemic has still kept us from having these. But worry not! There’s another way to catch up with our favorite writers and literary artists: through the power of podcasts! Check these podcasts out and indulge in the empowering voice of literature!
