Reading on Vocation with Ramona Koval

Being a reader isn’t about sitting in an ivory tower, turning your back on the world. The relationship between life and the page is more fluid. We’re shaped by what we read; at home, in our world views and in our careers.

In this monthly series The Wheeler Centre and Radio National’s The Book Show aim to uncover those links between work and words. Presented and chaired by acclaimed broadcaster Ramona Koval, the discussions will feature high-profile professionals – doctors and physicists, musicians and comedians – talking about the books that have been important to them and have influenced their profession.

On the last Wednesday of each month we’ll be Reading on Vocation. Recordings of each event will be broadcast nationally on The Bookshow on the Friday following each event.
