About The Show

Are you interested in the stories behind your favorite reads? So are we. That’s why we are presenting Books & Beyond, a show that gives you a fascinating window into the most compelling books and authors on the market today.

Books & Beyond is shot at some of the U.S.’ most storied independent bookstores — like the Strand in New York, and Powell’s Books in Portland, OR — lending an evocative sense of place. Watching the show is like stepping into your favorite bookstore and setting off on an exciting bibliographic journey.

The show immerses viewers in stimulating conversations and the exchange of ideas with recently published authors. Highlights include a talk with cartoonist and author Aline Crumb (who’s married to the famous comic underground artist, R. Crumb), as well as a discussion with New Yorker author D. T. Max about the late author David Foster Wallace. Whether the topic is lighthearted or weighty, the common denominator is this: Books & Beyond plays to the sophisticated, knowledgeable 50+ viewer who’s a lover of all things literary.
