Rare Recordings of Famous Authors

by Jesse M

Recently the folks over at Mental Floss compiled a list of 19 rare recordings of famous authors. The list is a who’s who of 19th and 20th century literary celebrities, including Hemingway, Kerouac, Whitman, Steinbeck, and many more! You can listen to J.R.R. Tolkien speak Elvish, Langston Hughes read his poetry, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle talk about how he started writing Sherlock Holmes! Follow this link to check it out. Happy listening!
