The Best Of Our Knowledge #1488 "Revisiting The Written Word"

Mar 28, 2019

I have a large stack of books on my desk right now, and I’m looking forward to reading through them and reporting back to you on what one or two of them have to say. So for now, let’s talk about one that I read about this time last year.

The way we tell stories has been a constantly changing part of human history. New inventions and writing technologies like paper, the printing press, even the book itself have shaped that history, affecting religion, politics and commerce. And those innovations continue.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk about a remarkable book that chronicles the history of the written word.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute with books for children that rhyme.
