Winter is a season for good cheer, but sometimes the books that call to us at this time of year give us the shivers. “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is a ghost story, after all. Whether you like horror stories or cookbooks, poetry or works in translation, we consider a range of titles that will keep you turning pages. And we want to know what’s on your reading list, so join the conversation on air or on our website to share the best book you’ve read this year.
- Barbara Hoffert Editor of the Book Review at Library Journal
- Monica Bhide Food writer; Author, "The Devil in Us"
- Keith Donohue Author, "The Boy Who Drew Monsters"
