A must for the serious reader, Bookworm showcases writers of fiction and poetry - the established, new or emerging - all interviewed with insight and precision by the show's host and guiding spirit, Michael Silverblatt. After 21 years, Bookworm has a new theme -- two, in fact! Replacing the familiar "You are a Human Animal," is "I Am A Bookworm," an original composition by the idiosyncratic rock-pop group, Sparks, At the end of the show, a second Sparks composition, "Where Would We Be Without Books." Curious? Check out the lyrics !  Bookworm listeners are invited to participate in the first ever KCRW BOOKWORM BOOK CLUB , hosted on Facebook.
