Nothing But Culture: Jo Whiley to relaunch the Radio 2 Book Club!

Each weeknight from next week, Jo Whiley brings Radio 2 listeners the best new music and guests, plus later this month, she’ll re-launch the Radio 2 Book Club.


From Monday 21 January, the Radio 2 Book Club will continue to feature new fiction as well as revisit the classics. A different book will be explored every fortnight and each will be reviewed by a book club from across the country.

Beginning with Claire Adam’s Golden Child, other Radio 2 Book Club choices in early 2019 will be:

  • Tracey Chevalier’s The Girl With The Pearl Earring - Monday 4 February

  • Angie Thomas’ On The Come Up - Monday 18 February

  • JD Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye - Monday 4 March

  • Ronan Hession’s Leonard & Hungry Paul - Monday 18 March

Jo Whiley says: “I’m thrilled to be hosting the Radio 2 Book Club on my new show. As an avid reader, I’m excited to discover some new authors and revisit some classic novels, as well as hear what the Radio 2 listeners think about our selection.”

We can’t wait for Jo’s brand new show which will air Monday - Thursday, 7 - 9pm.
