Catch Up So You Can Keep Up With the Conversation
September marks the beginning of a new season of the Emirates Literature Foundation's Boundless Book Club podcast. And this season, much like the ones before it, will see our three resident book enthusiasts — Ahlam Bolooki, Andrea Gisdal, and Annabelle Corton — dive into the wide world of literature as they discuss everything from recent best-sellers to age-old classics and ponder some of the bigger ideas and themes these works offer us.
And to celebrate the launch of the new season, we've put together a short list of some of our favourite episodes, as well as the reasons why we love them! So whether you've been an eager fan looking to reminisce about your favourite moments, or a first-time listener hoping to catch up, grab your headphones or plug your phone into your car and hit PLAY so you don't miss another minute!
