The podcast about new things made in response to books is here!  We have two episodes already.  The most recent features our latest performances and creations for AMERICANAH by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie for the mayor’s One Book, One New York initiative!  Listen on iTunes and Soundcloud!

Join BBC founder, Susan Hwang in her kitchen with songwriters, John S. Hall, Charlie Nieland, Jessie Kilguss, Krystal Hawes and Jennifer Devore for AMERICANAH-inspired cocktails and the cookie you don’t get for reducing racism.  The songwriters discuss their participation in the first One Book One NY initiative and the impact of AMERICANAH in their music and lives.  Enjoy songs from those at the kitchen table, plus performances from Karen Kuhl, Jim Flynn, Juliet Garrett, Janelle Lawrence, Annie McCain Engman, Terry Radigan, Swan Drsti and Iyvon Edebiri.  Kat Flannery‘s AMERICANAH-inspired painting is featured, but of course you can’t see it.
