Harvard Book Store welcomes WBUR's Radio Boston for a discussion of the best books of 2014, taped right here in the store with Radio Boston co-host ANTHONY BROOKS, local author CELESTE NG, and members of the Harvard Book Store staff.

Join us for this unique evening of book recommendations, conversation, and public radio (some of our very favorite things), just in time for the holiday gift giving season.

Radio Boston’s mission is to be the best source of smart conversation about ideas, issues, and people that matter most to our community. Radio Boston features provocative stories and authentic voices, reflecting what is unique about this city, state, and region. Listen weekdays at 3pm on WBUR 90.9 FM.
