Since we can’t gather in person to celebrate the written word this year, we’d like to post audio and video from previous Oxford Conferences for the Book. We begin the series with John T. Edge in media res, introducing Daniel Woodrell, who reads from his novel Give Us a Kiss: A Country Noir, from The Fifth Oxford Conference for the Book, March 13, 1998.

All week we will be posting tidbits from previous conferences, as well as information about a few of the authors who were supposed to be in attendance this year. Check each day for audio, video, interviews, and book reviews.
