WOSU book critic Kassie Rose returns to Gramercy Books for a special evening where you can share the books that changed your life or those you can’t live without. The catalyst for this discussion is My Life with Bob by Pamela Paul, the editor of The New York Times Book Review.

“Bob” is Paul’s “Book of Books,” a journal that records every book she’s ever read, from Sweet Valley High to Anna Karenina, from Catch-22 to Swimming to Cambodia, a journey in reading that reflects her inner life – her fantasies and hopes, her mistakes and missteps, her dreams and her ideas, both half-baked and wholehearted. Her life, in turn, influences the books she chooses, whether for solace or escape, information or sheer entertainment. 

With passion, humor, and insight, the editor of The New York Times Book Review shares the stories that have shaped her life.

Kassie Rose discusses books with WOSU host Christopher Purdy on All Sides Weekend Books and also reviews books for broadcast. An avid reader and book collector, she is a member of the National Book Critics Circle and the Aldus Society, which is a local chapter of the national Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS). Kassie writes about books on her blog TheLongestChapter.com.
