NET Radio All About Books

Charles Stephen hosts a weekly book-review and discussion program on NET Radio (91.1 FM in the Lincoln area, and on various other stations across Nebraska) to discuss contemporary and classic literature.

Although it dates back over 40 years, in a variety of formats and venues, for the past twenty-two years All About Books has run on NET-Radio. Stephen has been the sole weekly host since the death of Otis Young in 2009, although he invites guest reviewers on a regular basis. New episodes air every Thursday at 12:04 p.m. local time, following the NPR news.

The following is a listing of books discussed on episodes of All About Books during 2012. Episodes of All About Books are also available to be downloaded as audio Podcasts, via iTunes and various other web sources.

All books owned by Lincoln City Libraries are hotlinked to their entries in our library catalog, so that you may check on their current availability. If you see a title on this list that is not hotlinked to our collection, please consider ordering it through our Interlibrary Loan department.
