In Iceland, December is a celebration of books. Jolabokaflod, which translates to “yule book flood,” is a tradition that dates back to war time and rationing, where people gave books as gifts during the holiday season because there was no shortage of paper. For this final episode of 2020, CapRadio Reads is taking a 75-year-old holiday tradition and extending it to all the holidays of this winter solstice month.
In this podcast, you’ll hear from past CapRadio Reads authors, such as Alka Joshi and Georgeanne Brennan, on the books they like to give as gifts. And you’ll hear from CapRadio staff members about their favorite reads to share.
