Today in Literature
Good books, good stories – every day.
Today in Literature began in 2001, the naïve idea of an English teacher on leave from the classroom. It was a weekly radio series in Canada before moving to the internet, on Salon.com and several other sites. It is now an independent web-site and subscription service, with over 25,000 visitors a day and subscribers in virtually every country in the world.
