Carnival of Books

WMAQ Radio

Carnival of Books is a happy carousel of stories, literary enchantment, and inspiration. Through this engaging program, Mrs. Ruth Harshaw, author and educator, has for years been teaching children to find, enjoy, and appreciate good books. School children engage in lively and revealing conversations with contemporary authors. The show reflects the magic, fresh quality that only youngsters can elicit. Carnival of Books proves that broadcasting, far from being a deterrent to reading, stimulates and encourages it. In recognition, the Peabody Award for radio youth and children’s programs.
